Being productive in isolation.


My wrist was getting tired having to open all those beers by hand so made this from some scrap wood. The center is Cherry then maple then purpleheart outer. A rare earth magnet inset from the back catches the bottle caps.

I just borrow the pics for a minute put in a folder using paint.net then rotate 90 and re-post. Being they are yours and I only borrowed them I delete those from my folder.

Thanks again. When I opened it in the past in a program light photoshop then saved it, it would post correctly without any rotation. My computer crashed and I have not added all the bulky software back to the computer.

Re: Being productive in isolation.


Very nice!! I always wanted one of those which magically catches the bottle cab. Did you have to embed the magnet into the wood, or does it work just attached to the back?

As for the pics, the simple solution is to not use an Apple device. (Sorry, couldn't resist.)

I am not an apple fan I am typing this on my macbook.

Yes you need to inset a rare earth magnet. I used a Forstner bit to drill a hole very deep, too deep the point actually came through making a very small hole on the face which was hidden with some sanding and a dab of glue. Into the back side of this hole I put in one 1.26 by .08" rare earth disk attached by super glue, then glued another disk behind that one.

It can hold about 5 caps, not enough for a big night of isolation. I have a stronger magnet coming and might do another magnet hole above the first one.

Re: Being productive in isolation.


All i know how to do is bake cornbread to go with the Nail Soup the wife is making.

It was a trade deal. If i baked cornbread she would vacuum the Silver Bullet ( tundra ) I think I got the better of that trade.

Just finished adding 3 new receptacles my wife wanted in our screen house. Had to use my canoe to pull in the UF cable as the screen house is on our dock.

Re: Being productive in isolation.


Now i'm wondering if anyone got a better deal and I may have ended up with the short end of the stick. 2 old country folks detailing the interior of 2 vehicles in about 1-1/2 hrs. OMG, bet i sleep well tonight.
