Cedar Cooler Lid Revamped

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

Cool

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
