crank arm bottle opener

I found a use for all the old cranks laying around. I'm gonna make them into bottle openers for my bike buddies.

Wow, nice work!

The andirons are long gone, but the candlestick holder I made in HS is still at my folks house...

Nice bottle opener. Looks like it has the leverage and strength to open just about anything.

Those are all awesome. I have one of the ones made from a rear dropout. Unfortunately I lack the fabrication skills/tools to make a really cool one myself. I'd love to have one of the crank arm ones for the garage/bike shop and one of the shifter ones to hang from my bike seat rail or something.
