I may just make some bottle openers out of them. Just to crack a beer in his memory.
Make cool tap handles .

Here is my version of the KANSAS opener from post #112. I turned it up this weekend from some oak. I even ground off the nail head so it wont snag in your pocket. I had to adjust the nail a bit to get it to catch the crown edge, but it has thereafter worked perfectly.

I've got the homebrewed wall opener on the outside post of my deck with a Sam Adams bucket to catch the caps. Works great!
