Pallet Board Bottle Opener

We've still got some pallets and some leftover pieces in our garage.  I saw this item for sale on one of the daily deal sites a few weeks back for around $25 plus shipping and handling:


I figured there would be a way to make it for a whole lot less. The person that I thought would enjoy this would be my brother-in-law, Chris. He has moved a lot of furniture for us lately and been Rob's right hand man when he needs some help.  He loves Budweiser on occasion, so I was able to find a Budweiser opener on Ebay for around $7.00.  I picked up some stickers at Michaels to create the OPEN on my opener, and then added a bucket to hold the actual caps once you use the opener.  The bucket was from the Target dollar section. In total I spent approximately $10.00 to make my own, and I've got a lot of stickers left over.

Rob sanded down the pallet piece, and then placed the stickers on it. Then he drilled in the bottle opener and used a hook to attach the bucket.







Chris...this will be ready for you when you come back. Thanks for stopping by!

  3. Your knock off version is perfect. I love that you even have a bucket to collect the bottle caps. There is usually a bottle cap that always ends up on the floor, near the recycling bin and I am always the one to step on it...so I can appreciate this extra touch. I can't wait to see what you do with the rest of the pallet (first a table, then a bottle opener...what's next).

  35. This looks awesome! It would've come in real handy back in my beer drinkin' days - I'd always lose my fridge magnet beer opener after a few drinks ;) I like your blog - it's great that the whole family is involved. I started my blog because my family couldn't care less about my crafty experiments. Have a great weekend!

  39. Awesome! I love the bucket idea too. I'm always picking up random bottle caps around the kitchen, wondering why it just TOO hard to turn around and throw it in the garbage can. But a bucket will work too!
