How To Build a Bottle Cap Coffee Table

Creating a bottle cap coffee table can be a fun and creative way to use up those old soda bottle caps. This project requires some basic tools, supplies, and some patience. It’s definitely not a quick project, but the result is truly unique.


  • Wooden boards for the table surface and legs
  • Hot glue gun/glue sticks
  • Soda bottle caps
  • Sealant or varnish


  1. Gather your wooden boards and cut them to size. You’ll need one board for the tabletop, four boards for the legs, and two boards to create a shelf beneath the table.
  2. Drill pilot holes into the tabletop boards, and screw the legs into the holes. Attach the shelves with screws as well.
  3. Using your hot glue gun, begin gluing the bottle caps onto the tabletop. Start at the center and work your way outward in a spiral pattern. Make sure the bottle caps are all facing the same direction.
  4. Once all of the bottle caps have been glued onto the tabletop, allow plenty of time for the glue to dry. Then seal the entire tabletop with either a sealant or varnish.
  5. Optional: Paint the legs to match or add decoration to the table.


A bottle cap coffee table is a great addition to any home because it is unique, sustainable, and economical. Plus, it’ll give you an excuse to hold onto those soda bottle caps instead of throwing them away.
