How to Make a Bottle Opener

Introduction: How to Make a Bottle Opener

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

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.

    How has it performed? Just curious, I'd have though aluminum too soft to hold up to this sort of thing.

    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.
