DIY Bottle Opener

Hey guys!  I have a quick and easy project for you, today, that would make a great Father’s Day gift and it’s easy enough that the kids could help!

how-to-make-a-bottle-openerI was able to use my cedar fence plank scraps from my DIY Planters so my cost was only in the metal hardware and the bottle opener!

measurementsIf you don’t have cedar fence plank scraps, you can purchase a 1x6x6 from Home Depot for about $3.  I cut 3 pieces at 4″, one piece at 6″ and one piece at 21″.  A simple hand saw (link to purchase in the box below) will work great if you don’t have a saw!

attach-4-inch-piecesNext, attach the 4″ pieces like this with wood glue and finishing nails.  I used my Ryobi Airstrike Nailer but if you don’t have one, a hammer and finishing nails will work great!

attach-frontUsing wood glue and finishing nails, attach the 6″ piece to the front of the 4″ pieces.
