Wooden bottle opener made from the counter top of a bar from an Ex-Servicemen’s Club in Gateshead known as The Bombers. The bar top, staging and the dance floor was salvaged from this historic centre of community in Gateshead enabling something to be made that is sympathetic to the original use of the wood - from bar to bottle opener!
The wood was stripped back, hand cut, sanded and then finished with a dark wax. Each bottle opener contains a small neodymium magnet which sticks to the bottle cap when opening, and another on the top so you can stick it to your fridge - handy!
All Handmade Tyneside products are handmade entirely from reclaimed or salvaged wood, using traditional carpentry and wood-shop techniques. This means each item is unique and therefore products may vary slightly, to those shown.
Made from: 100% reclaimed wood
By Handmade Tyneside
Wooden Bottle Opener
Handmade Tyneside is a one-man wood shop and design studio based in the North East of England. Everything is handmade, using 100% reclaimed wood sourced from all over Tyneside and Northumberland; from the age-old dance floor of a derelict nightclub to something with the character and heritage of church doors or mahogany lift cladding.
Every item is unique. Many pieces will be a limited run meaning when the wood runs out, so does the product line.
