Bar top…outer rim 3/4” dado 3/8” deep… glued and air nailed to 3/4” ply… cement board…corks from all the wineries we have visited…bottle caps are in thin-set morter…gray… topped with 2 boxes of clear coat epoxy finish (very simple to use and solidifies in about a day) – hope you enjoy…

Love this. The tavern at the college I went to had a bar like this but had pennies in it instead of bottle caps. Always wanted to make something like this.

Cool, my son and I work all over the world and we should save up some caps and make one of these.

I like this project, I’ve had something like this in mind for a long time. Takes some time to set all those caps though, I’ll bet. I had a collection of hundreds of caps that I have collected over the years, now if I could just remember where I stored them.

“corks from all the wineries we have visited”
And you can still walk straight? :D
Where did you get the clear coat epoxy? Any specific brand? Good design for the bar.
I worked with a guy who collected beer bottles and displayed them in his den. Had some like 200 different brands from around the world. This was 40 years ago- no telling what he has now.
