Ever since I started to collect caps, I've had a sudden aspiration to make something of it. It wasn't worth it until my collection had expanded from the hundreds to thousands, but with time ideas slowly came together. I started to make murals- mostly from previously discovered logos in order to advertise with art. As my collection has grown more pieces have come about and I will briefly described to you how these pieces of are are made:
1) Wash all of the caps with water and rinse thoroughly. Once washed lay them out and allow them to dry naturally in order to prevent rust.
2) Sort the caps into colors and labels in order to make the placing much, MUCH easier!!
3) Once sorted, separated them into boxes and prepare your canvas by putting plywood on a flat surface.
4) Buy a desired color of spray paint and layer the plywood 2-3 times until a fine coat is apparent.
5) Then draw an outline of your image upon the surface and begin identifying what colors will be where.
6) Later place all the caps in a caddie-corner style where the caps are in rows one way, and a diagonal formation the other.
7) Over time the image will come together and once you are finished you must begin to cut your wood.
8) Make 3 (2x4's) into 2 (8') sides and cut one into 2 (4') sides. then bevel the inner edge with a 1/4'' section and 1/8'' section right above that. If cut correctly, each side should be able to simply fall into place on the plywood like a puzzle piece.
9) Only place three sides on as you will next slide the plexiglass into you 1/8" cut allowing it to lay right on top of the caps.
10) Lastly, you can place the final side onto the table and drill holes for each side allowing the screws to latch on and pull your table together.
11) To finish the table correctly you must now fill your holes with wood-filler and smear silicon into the cracks so that nothing will creep in post-production.
