Introduction: The $0.05 Stationary Bottle Opener
If you're anything like me (handsome and funny), you misplace your tape measures constantly. I have a small space and 4 tape measures .. still happens. You also misplace your bottle openers and you don't carry one because your key ring is already crying for mercy.
You, my fine feathered friend, need a bottle opener you can't lose ... and you want it for free!! Or a few cents if you don't already have a washer and a screw.
Step 1: The Parts and the Bits
Find yourself a washer and a screw. I already had them. You might have to steal them ... or buy them ... you should probably buy them.
Also, find yourself two drill bits. Mine were 1 1/4" and 1 1/2" Forstner bits and I love them. If you don't have a set, save up your allowance and get some. You will thank me. Maybe ask Santa if you know him.
Step 2: Drill the Larger Hole
Drill the larger hole in your desired location. This was a mock up so it's a scrap 2"x4". I went as deep as the bit, which was 1/2".
Step 3: Mark the Second Hole
Position the washer, making sure you leave enough room for the bottle cap, and mark for your second hole.
Step 4: Drill the Second Hole
With the smaller bit, drill the second hole, but only as deep as necessary for the washer to be flush with the surface.
Step 5: Install Washer
Pop the washer into the small, shallow hole and screw that bad boy down.
Step 6: Open That Bottle
You're done! I installed mine in the front leg of my miter saw station as you can see in the first picture. I'll never misplace that thing!
We have a be nice policy.
