Wood Thumb

Bottle Opener Private Workshop

The magnetic bottle opener is the most useful wood item you never knew you needed. Every time you open a beer it catches the flying top with powerful, rare-earth magnets.

Inspired to make your own? Roll up your sleeves and pick out a piece of rich dark walnut. We’ll use power tools to cut it to size, bevel the edges and drill shallow holes for the magnets. 

You’ll get covered in sawdust, make some new friends and leave with a whole new appreciation for making stuff. The bottle opener is also a great gift — but you know you’ll want to keep it.
