I’m interested in putting my beer bottle caps on top of my cedar beer cooler and I’m going to put an epoxy cover on it..

But I read online that you should fix the bottle caps to the top before adding the liquid epoxy so as that they don’t rise ro the top

Any ideas on what to use??

You know that makes a lot of sense. What about something super easy, a hot glue gun? I mean the only thing your wanting is for the caps to stay fixed until the epoxy sets, right?

Cut a dowel into slices then just use silicone or liquid nail to put the dowel slice into the cap, then any wood glue, or the same liquid nail to put it on the cooler.

Hot glue or superglue sounds like a good suggestion. Hot glue might be more forgiving/fixable, and less likely to have you end up with your hands bonded to your cooler.
