If you’re looking for a woodworking project that people will love, and you can make in a HUGE hurry from scrap, this Post Haste Project is it. Grab a chunk from your scrap bin, bore a few holes, do a little routing, mount the hardware and you’ll have something really catchy. (That’ll make more sense when you see the project.)

It’s SOOO easy
You may have seen a magnetic bottle opener with cap catcher in stores or online, and tried to figure out how to make one for yourself. What size magnet? Where do you place the magnet? Where do you get the hardware? No sweat, Woodworkers Guild of America has you covered. This instructional video is short, but it has every bit of information you need for this woodworking project.

Other gift ideas
If a magnetic bottle opener with cap catcher isn’t quite your cup of tea (or bottle of, um, beverage), you should have a look at all the other woodworking projects that Woodworkers Guild offers. Want to stick with a bottle opener theme, but not in this style? Check out this article that provides great instruction on how to make a bottle opener that’s different from the one we’re showing you here.

Change it up
The only thing that’s really critical is the relationship between the opener and the magnet. So, be creative! Use your bandsaw and cut the backer in the shape of a bottle. Carve someone’s name into the backer. There are lots of options for personalizing your magnetic bottle opener with cap catcher.

    Love the video….I build the exact same thing, but the only changes I have made is I use two sets of magnets and use an antiqued bottle opener. I also spar urethane it so it can be inside or outside. I use keyhole hangers also so there isn’t any outside markings other then the bottle opener.
