I made this coffee table at the request of my nephew. He asked that I put beer caps in the top. He also implied that he wanted me to use a two part epoxy to encase the caps. He has two little ones running around an is expecting a 3rd. I took into consideration that one day his wife would say “Get that Budweiser coffee table out of my house”. Because of that I used some tempered glass that my neighbor gave me. He got the two piece from a display case that was being thrown out. I built the table around them. It is a little over 4 feet long and 18 inches tall. The design changed about 10 times throughout the course of building it. I hope you like it. It is made form red oak.

Great looking – I like it – I just wish I had been around for the drinking party.

Looks like a well made coffee table. The design strikes me as a bit unusual, but then I am not a big beer drinker !

Love the design on the fly, work around whatchagot tactic. I think it’s a nice looking table but have to say your nephew has poor taste in beer… : )

Very nice table, my brother would like something like this. Did you epoxy the caps down then just cover them with the glass?

Coz,

Great looking table – good lines and I like that it’s a little “beefy”.

BUT…....... Budweiser?? Why would ANYONE admit to drinking that stuff?

Maybe, one day, when he tastes a real beer, you can easily remove the glass and replace it with some decent bottle caps. ;-)

Great job!

Great table, thanks for sharing.
