So a year or so after I built this I decided that I don’t like the lid and a few friends collected about 600 bottle caps and I decided to use them on this revamp.

I used Glaze Coat 2 part epoxy on this project and o have to say it’s awesome but you have to be organised when working with it.. You have 15-20 minutes to work with it but as you can see the result can be outstanding.

This was my first time dealing with 2 part epoxy but I am please with the experience.

I also got to use my new Crafysman biscuit joiner to join all the pieces that the caps sit on..

Very happy and now to fill the cooler, but I gotta wait another 36 hours before it can rest in its new home on my deck

Great looking lid. Let us know how the epoxy holds up in the sun. I did a table top with envirotex and with in 3 months the sun had yellowed it so bad you couldn’t see the picture under it. I would really like to find a UV resistant epoxy.

Cool idea. But you could have come up with a nicer design with the bottle caps…

Unless that is some kind of logo with which I’m unfamiliar.

Thanks and no it’s not a logo.. Beauty is in the eye of the beholder gargey.. I had an assortment of bottle caps and to be honest the logo thing is done to death .. I like it and so its original in my eyes.. Thanks for looking
