I suddenly needed a Corkscrew and I realised I didn't have one.

I took a 10mm thick Threaded rod (9cm long), and a big wood screw (8cm long), weld both, removed the sharp point with a Dremel (cut off disc).

and here is the result !

(PS: as a temporary solution, I succeed to use the screw through the ring of a 10mm combination wrench, scewed it into the cork, and opened the bottle by grab the wrench...)
Great idea.&nbsp; Its amazing what you can do with some odds and ends, however for some it may lack the finish of other corkscrews.<br> <br> Actually we've just realised a range of <a href="http://www.giftsandmerchandise.co.uk/product/diy-corkscrew" rel="nofollow">diy corkscrews</a> for people who like to make stuff and either don't have the skills to do it all, or wan't the product to look good in less time.<br> <br> Got a few other DIY product ideas like this coming out.<br> <br> Thanks for your article.<br> <br> p.s. vine is also a great material for making corkscrew handles from.
