I made two bottle openers today. The lower one was the first one made, and it will be mine. It was made from 5/8" round bar. I cut and drifted the hole. added the scroll and than heated and twisted the handle. I don't have a vice yet. the twist was done by hand with a set of channel locks and a crecent wrench so it wasn't anywhere close to straight but I got it straightened out pretty well. The second one is a gift for the quarry owner I got my anvils from and a lot of metal stock. It's a bolt that I got from him. and it's nothing fancy, but he's not really the fancy type of guy anyway.
