Bottle Opener with purchased insert
This is a simple bottle opener I created in Fusion 360, to cut out with my Shaper Origin
Files included (1)
3/4" wood 8" long x 3" wide
bootle opener insert
Shaper Origin, 1/4 bit (engraving bit if engraving is desired)
1/4 bit supplied by Shaper for all cuts
Cut the hole for the string. This was a helix cut all the way thru the stock
Cut the outside of the two circles for the bottle opener insert.
I started with a depth of .04. I pocketed out the circle, adjusting offset each cut, testing insert until there was a tight fit.
Next was to get the depth flush. I adjusted depth slowly, testing the insert again, until I had a flush fit.
Now cut the inner of the two circles. This cut is made so that the bootle cap has a void to fit into the opener.
This depth could be a tight fit for the bottle cap to fit, up to a thru cut. However you would like yours to look. I ended up going with a thru cut for looks and I really like the way it turned out.
Using an outside cut, cut around the OD of the opener. I did this at a 1/4" at a time until thru.
Sand. Make sure the bottle opener has a good feel in your hands
Stain to whatever finish you would like.
Layout insert, drill pilot holes for screws and install insert
I ended up cutting another piece from copper, and glued it to the top. I engraved a logo on it that I already had uploaded onto my shaper hub. Centering of logo was done on tool.
Bottle opener insert was purchased on amazon,
