While the PVC is drying, prepare to connect the boards cut in step 1 by drilling pilot holes with the Dremel Micro into the left and right corners of the boards. Then, drill 1 ½“ screws to attach the 3“ board to the 18“ board, as seen in the image.

Next, determine where you want the bottle opener to be located on the 18“ board. Press the open half of the 4“ PVC to the 3“ board so it will collect the bottle tops when they fall from the bottle. Be sure to give enough space between the bottle opener and where the PVC sits to collect the bottle top. Hot glue the ping pong balls to the board so they appear like eye balls!
