Beautiful concept, execution, and documenting. Thank you.

Since it is a serving tray, I am curious about how slippery that finish is.

I really like that, we have quite a few Coke logo things around the house. I would have trouble finding bottle caps though. I have seen bottled Coke around here for some time.
I started with absolutely nothing. Now, thanks to years of hard work, careful planning, and perseverance, I find I still have most of it left.

I place that I see Coke in bottles most often is Costco/Sam's_Club/BJ's when they carry the Mexican-made Coke with real sugar.

You can set a glass on it and tip it to about a 15 degree angle before it starts to slide off. I had thought about wet sanding it and polishing it as if it was a car but just didn't think it would be really worth the effort since right now even though it is slightly orange peeled, it's still very clear and not really noticeable unless you hold a light on it and kind of move it around.</p>
