(Sorry for the rotation. I took them right side up, but they load with a 90 degree rotation.)

This countertop was a terrible countertop made of formica that was falling off. I ripe this off, and floated and leveled the countertop to make it level. Put an edge band up and hot glued the bottle caps down. After that I added another Larger trim piece that was covered with homemade wipeon poly. Love the way it turned out.

Things to note: MAKE DANG SURE YOUR COUNTERTOP IS LEVEL. Mine was ever so slightly out and it shows. Make sure to torch the top. I was worried I’d damage it, but it worked like a top to pop the bubbles.

Parks super glaze is what epoxy I used. 3 qrts.
Minwax gloss poly, cut 60/40 with mineral spirits for the “homemade wipeon poly”

Thanks for looking.

I like that pour on epoxy, I use to use the cutting torch to pop the bubbles as the kids at school would steal the propane torches.

Thank you all. The first time I saw a table top with this style I started saving beer tops for this reason. Fast forward several years and here we are. (several years to drink that much beer. Well I wanted unique tops, and not all the same thing. So I tried to be selective).
