Bottle Opener

This is the bottle opener that I have been working on for the last week.  I bought a combination bottle/paint can opener and cut the paint can opener off.  Next I drilled a hole in a piece of 1 inch diameter dowel and inserted the bottle opener.  The dowel was wrapped in adhesive tape to help keep the string from slipping around.  The blue portion is 3 strand ring bolt hitching, also know as cockscombing.  The ends of the ring bolt hitching is covered with 6 lead by 5 bight turks heads.  The turks heads were tied by first tying 4 lead by 3 bight turks heads and then enlarging them.
