    Any good ideas what to do with bottle caps?

    I've got a little bucket under my bottle opener and it's getting full of beer caps. I was wondering if you creative types out there had a good way to put them to use.

    I'd like to see a machine that presses them into a size that fits a wheel center cap.

    I see cars all the time missing a cap or two and my last car had one missing. I ordered one and was sent the incorrect type, returned it and the dealer said they never got it.
    I just had to sell the car and start over (traded it in).

    On the new car, I'm thinking of creating safety tethers or making them magnetic. I just know if I try this plan shown here, someone will pull the tab.

    I've seen a bar top that was covered with bottle caps under a pourable, clear, resin-like product. Once it had hardened it was like glass. Pretty cool!

    Find a beat up coffee table, strip any leftover finish, find a hole saw drill bit of appropriate size, make a pattern and fit the bottle caps, tape around the edge of the table to just above the pattern top, fill gently with resin and let set, remove tape, sand, fill, cover or whatever else is needed to finish.

    That's what I get for not reading the whole thread, KlureJr beat me to it months ago

    BDS: Very nice cabinet handle. Mine is still in service as well.
    I don't know why,... it's just MUSS easier to pedal than the other ones.

    Lay them all out on a huge table. Count them. Multiply the total by an average of the cost of each full bottle. Cry.

    If we'd all bought the Niner Bikes YAWYD headset top cap for every one of our bikes, Niner wouldn't be declaring bankruptcy.

    You can also fill those glass lamps that typically get filled with seashells with them.

    Dammit. I just gave away a small metal table that would have been perfect for the cap/resin thing.

    I shoot a lot, so hitting a beer bottle cap at 100 yards and beyond is a nice challenge. Plus, I don’t have to buy targets.
