Introduction: One Hand Bottle Opener

About: If you like simple solutions then here you can find some of my crazy ideas.

This bottle opener works better than any other bottle opener I know.

Step 1: Cut a Piece of Scrap Wood

the dimension doesn't matter

Step 2: Round the Edges

if you don't have a router, use sandaper

Step 3: Cut It in Length

ca. 10cm

Step 4: Drill a Hole

to avoid splintering

Step 5: Sanding

sanding, sanding ...

Step 6: Nailing

a nail with a big head works better

Step 7: Open Your Bottle

The secret is to push it down, instead of pulling

Congratulation! Make two and open two bottle at the same time!

Mind you the way I use power tools things could change! ;-)

Thanks! I did it and it works better. Congrats for the idea

it was too dangerous what you did with the router. don't you worry about your fingers?

Beautiful in its simplicity! I like the nail...ever try to pull a nail out?

That is beautifully simple! Seems like the nail would get pulled out over time. Maybe a screw instead?

thank you jgscott987. a screw is unnecessary, the nail is very very tight.
