Letter openers are common household items but are normally make from steel or glass. Now you can make one out of wood to fit into your wood turning household or for gifts for friends and family.

Now you can open your envelopes with your own wood turned letter opener.

 

 Turning a Letter OpenerTurning a Letter Opener by Alan Lacer
In this photo tutorial, Alan Lacer shows us how to turn a letter opener. He describes turning the handle in detail and then shows us how to sand the front to become the "knife" portion of the letter opener. This is a fun and easy project.

 

 Turn your own Letter OpenerTurn your own Letter Opener by Weekend Woodworking Projects
I was looking around for a good way to make my own wood letter opener and found this project which allows me to turn the entire project by using 3 centers.

The handle portion is turned on centers but the cutting portion is turned on 3 center to create a lovely offset, oval taper that cuts paper like a charm!

So, if you're looking for a new challenge, get into the shop and make some of these fun, wood turned letter openers.
