1. When did you start your business and why did you start it?

In the Summer of 2010, I was trying to come up with a project to do with my son. We made garland from my collection of bottle caps than I moved on to baskets, pocketbooks, a small beer bottle fence. At my full-time job, I was given this huge box of a beer bottle cap collection from a bar in Manayunk, Pennsylvania. As a thank you, I made him a beer basket. When I delivered the basket, I discovered that he wanted his wall filled with beer caps. Which sent me on a mission to find out what resin was. After making some samples for the bar, I ended up not creating a wall project, instead I labeled and bottle capped a 6 – 7 feet table for his bar!

2. What kind of products or services do you offer at your business?

I create tables, ornaments, trays, coasters, and so much more from beer bottle caps. I offer custom orders, even if you would like something other than beer caps! I have created trays with pictures, coaster with a sand dollar and another coaster to display an award.

3. How often do you shop at Fiberglass Coatings? What makes you a repeat customer?

I love Fiberglass Coatings! I have tried other resins, but they do not compare to that crystal clear look! The outcome of the resin is so clear that some people have thought they could actually pick up the caps. I try to have many products ready for resining than I have resin nights. On some nights all I do is work on projects with resin. Fiberglass Coatings has many products that you can use for many projects!!

4. What products do you normally buy from Fiberglass Coatings? Can you tell us a specific product/products you buy and what you use them for?

My resin of choice is the Clear Table Top Epoxy System, which is perfect for my creations. But I have interest in different tools and silicone mold making products, and other epoxy resin products.
