Dual Purpose Desk Accessory
Bottle Opener Paper Weight is an all in one item by Alan Adler. This dual purpose items can be left on your desk. It is both a paperweight and the bottle opener that is nice enough to leave out all the time. On a lathe I make a semi sphere that features pyrography symbols. Then I apply color stains and a protective finish. These are great conversation pieces and better looking than a church-key.
Pyrography is a branding technique where symbols burn the wood surface with a red hot wire. The bottle opener features a heavy gauge stainless steel plate which sits into a recess at the bottom of the paperweight. The size is 3 1/2 inch diameter by 2 1/4 inches high.

I design and produce all of the items on this website in my studio in Montvale, New Jersey, USA. My primary machine is the American made Robust wood lathe. Once the form is complete I will take the item to the workbench. This is where I will decorate it and apply a protective finish.
Care Instructions for Wood Products
- Keep out of direct sunlight and minimize exposure to wide swings in humidity levels
- Do not wash with water and if necessary use only a damp cloth
- Wax lightly with a quality food safe wax or oil and buff to restore the luster. I like beeswax, walnut oil or mineral oil.
