If you're itching to make something this weekend, consider this attractive and handy wooden bottle opener. All you need is a small block of hard wood, a nail, and two magnets for the project.
Art of Manliness walks you through how to make your own bottle opener: essentially, carve the wood, bend the nail after inserting it into a drilled hole, and add the magnets. The addition of the magnets is smart (and something you can do to improve any bottle opener).
Sure, we've seen a load of ways to open bottles, including using a piece of paper, your arm and a piece of scrap wood. While not as unusual as those methods, this wooden one is handsome and you can feel proud after making it yourself.
