Introduction: One Hand Bottle Opener

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

very cool, but it works better if you drive the screw a little bit more in the wood. give it a try and let me know how it works.

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

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.
