Intro: Magnetic Bottle Opener
I found a pretty cool beer bottle opener at a flea market and I figured I would just slap it to a piece of wood. Then Pinterest happened and I saw all of these designs and found the one with a magnet hidden in the wood and I figured I would give it a try, so here it is!!!
Step 1: Tools Needed
Miter saw, hammer, chisel, hole saw, stain, gorilla glue, and poly, or you could just not be me and get a router. I keep procrastinating.
Step 2: Materials Needed
Wood, magnet, screws, beer bottle opener.
Step 3: Getting Started
I grabbed a scrap piece of pallet wood from the coffee mug holder that I built and cut it at 13 inches. I placed my magnet on the back and traced around it.
Step 4: Cutting Out the Hole
I did an outline with my hole saw, once I had it to the depth I wanted I took out my chisel and went to work. The thickness of my wood is 3/4 in, I went to 5/8ths in deep.
Step 5: Staining and Poly
Once you have your hole cut out. It’s time to stain, I am going with honey so it’s not that dark so I am sticking with one coat. If you want yours darker wait a n hour or two and add another coat. Once it dries put on the polyurethane.
Step 6: Adding the Magnet
Once your poly is dry flip over the board and add an aggressive amount of glue and place your magnet in the hole. Let the glue dry.
Step 7: Add the Bottle Opener
Once the glue dries, flip it back over and put your bottle opener on at desired height. Once that’s finished hang it up and impress your friends
