Default Bottle opener

So, for the past few months I've gone to the garage to get a beer, then found a wrench or pliers, or screwdriver to open it because there's no opener out there. Today I broke out the pallet wood and a few tools and made this for the garage wall. It is FAR from fine woodworking, but it's not supposed to be fine, it is, after all, pallet wood in a rustic environment.

What are you drinking, that you would need a bottle opener? Because all of the glass beer and soda bottles are all screw top, as far as I know. No need of a bottle opener with one of those.

But when I was young there were no screw tops, you buy a case of beer, you get a free opener. And if you lost the opener, no prob, we would pop them open on a car bumper, or car door hinge. They used to have them on key rings too.

Functional woodworking counts too Ken. I still remember when you also needed a "church key" to open a can of beer.

Someone I consider a master woodworker once told me that a master woodworker is not someone who never makes mistakes. He is someone who is able to cover them up so that no one can tell.

Theo, some of the smaller micro breweries are not twist off. Some wine coolers and hard cider as well.

Another place there ALWAYS used to be an opener like this one was in motel rooms. NOT any more!! SWMBO and I stayed at one, and I bought refreshments that needed an opener. Fortunately I had a pair of pliers in the car. Now there is always an opener in the glove box of the car for times like this.

Ken, that's a real nice addition to any garage. I was going to mount an opener to one of my shelf uprights.. never thought of a cap catcher.

I drink craft beers or Corona, all of the bottles require an opener. I will also home brew when I'm finally organized here, and for that I won't need an opener because I have a draft setup.

I bottle mine into 500ml plastic bottles with one-time plastic screw tops.
Anybody doesn't like that combo doesn't have to drink it...
