Bottle opener

Recommended Posts

I have a local light gauge railway that I buy small size scrap track & spikes (dogs in the UK) from. At Christmas I made a few screw-to-the-wall bottle openers from some of the dogs. To my mind the dog heads have the defining character so my design keeps that intact. Bottle goes from angled to vertical in the opening process so no beer is spilled.FB_IMG_1517749346144.jpg.b55c8ef51482149f849e98cf8e7bd51f.jpg

Joel, Very simple, clean and yet so expressive. I agree about your dog’s heads with their definition and character. I dig em!

Will the bottle cap come in contact with the wall while being pried off? If so, maybe a backing plate could be added to protect it?

Not if you make sure they kick out a tad from below the bottom hole.
