materials:
1 piece of 6"x1.5" piece of alluminum 1/8" thick

Procedure:
1) Drill large hole in the same location as in the picture
2) make band saw cuts inward towards the hole
3)round all edges until they are not sharp or to desired roundness

This bottle opener is very easy to make and works great. I made it at the TechShop. www.techshop.ws
How has it performed? Just curious, I'd have though aluminum too soft to hold up to this sort of thing.
It works great. I have never had a problem with the strength of the alluminum.
Yeah, cool, I guess I always forget that there are different grades and tempers of aluminum that make a huge difference (like any other metal). I always think of it as super soft since the aluminum wires I always work with are always super soft.
Always good to have a reliable bottle opener! You should enter this into the <a href="https://www.instructables.com/id/Scoochmaroo-Challenge-Fathers-Day/">Father's Day Challenge</a> that is ending at midnight tonight!
