Here's a new (awesome!) way to put beer bottle caps collection to good use: make a cool bottle-cap table surface using al of them.
You will need about 160 lids for a not very big table. The core process is about gluing each cap to a surface and then pouring epoxy.
I applied a model-making super-glue to the edges of the caps, pressed them in, and waited a few hours for the stuff to dry.
