Skateboarders are constantly breaking their boards. We have accumulated a few over the years. I began cutting out smaller cruiser shapes from the old decks, which cut off the parts that were chipped and worn down. Skateboard decks are made by gluing multiple layers of wood together, usually of different colors which has a unique appearance. The first project with the deck scrapes was just a basic keychain. The keychains were cool, but a friend suggested adding something to it because it was kind of boring. The bottle opener was born. It was rather crude at first, just a skateboard bolt sticking out of the bottom. The idea worked, but it was not practical since the bolt could get snagged when pulling it out of a pocket or bag. The shape of the keychain is a direct result of this lengthy trial and error period.
All of the bottle openers are cut (with a bandsaw) and sanded by hand. In the spirit of re-using and recycling, we also use the grip tape from the broken boards as sand paper. The bottle openers then receive a protective clear coat to bring out the awesome colors in each layer.
We make each one by hand, so there are slight differences and variances that make each one unique and totally awesome. They are great for opening bottles too.
