We have found that a 4-1/2" – 5" handle works the best. Once the handle is completed, epoxy the opener into the previously drilled hole and then sit back and relax with a cold beverage. Opener measures approximately 1-7/8" wide by 3-1/4" tall and incorporates a 3/8 diameter threaded post by 1-5/16" long.

I am very happy with the bottle opener, I do wish there were other options asides from just stainless steel. Following the advice of another reviewer I used an 11/32 drill bit, which is correct as a 3/8 will create a hole way to large.

Bottle Opener Heads
What happened to the Pewter bottle opener heads ? I do not care for chrome as the pewter looks more antique. Throw away the heavy threaded insert and just use the fine thread shank itself using good epoxy. Otherwise the head of the opener has to be much bigger and looks like a club.
Great bottle opener
This is a great opener, but beware, The directions written by woodcraft use a 3/8 bore. I found this to be incorrect, as it will create a hole too large to allow threading (the threads are machined into the shank of the bottle opener from the manufacturer). I recommend using an 11/32 bore so that the opener can be threaded down into the hole with epoxy.
Will buy this again
Look great with any type of wood used for the handle.
