YouTuber Peter Brown has taken to his “Shop Time” channel to show the world how bubble wrap can be transformed from entertaining packing material to awesome but frustrating drink coaster.

The process involved applying a layer of epoxy resin to a mold frame, embedding a sheet of bubble wrap, and adding another layer to cover the wrap after it has cured. After the second layer has cured, coaster shapes are marked and cut out on a bandsaw.

Unfortunately, the final product loses all of its popping potential (AGHHHHHHHHHH!!!), but will provide an interesting conversation piece that will probably result in requests for you to make more. Check out the tutorial video below. [click to continue…]

Redditor slavicgrip 3D printed this Fallout 4 drink coaster and gave it a sweet paint job.

I would be willing to part with many bottle caps to own one, but those of you with access to a 3D printer can do one better and make it yourself with these free plans on Thingiverse.
