I have no idea how solid and reliable the construction is - the good news is that it's a designer thing but you can try making it at home.

There's no an instruction but I don't think it is too hard to construct. Just glue the nespresso containers in a stand!

In any case, it does look like a pretty thing:

DIY Bottle-Cap Table

Bottle-Cap Table

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.

    • Ikea Ingo table: $25
    • Beer: $6 to $10 per sixer
    • Super-glue: $3 to $7
    • Wood trim: $2 to $3 per piece
    • Paint (optional): $4 for 8 oz.
    • Paintbrush (optional): $1
    • Epoxy: $20 per pint
