Open Sesame

I needed a few stocking stuffer gifts for some friends. I happened to get an email, from one of the woodworking sites that I subscribe to, this morning with some plans for these bottle openers. Cool, I thought, I'll whip out a few of them. About 3 hours of cutting, boring and staining and we have five openers. I used some walnut that I had, laying around in the shop. There is a rare earth magnet, just under the round plug on the underside, that catches the cap so it doesn't fall on the floor. A washer, screwed to the underside slides under the cap and pries it off. Works like a charm. Turned out pretty good, I think
