I made half yesterday and just popped this pan load in the oven. Yum YUM!
I almost didn't include that tip but I have tried rubber bands and tape, then some caps were sitting on my machine and I sit a bobbin in one with the tail underneath and wallah... Glad you liked it :)

I get a lot of compliments. The first thing they do is drop down and touch it then then next is whip out their phone for a photo. It is my best project yet for sure. Thanks for your interest.
324 a square foot. You can use less and grout but I found it easier to butt them up against each other and I liked the look and not having to grout was nice. Plus I liked the different colors of the pennies and grout can have sand that can clean the pennies more that I wanted.
LOL and quite a few ugly pennies too.
I just used the contact plastic to get them to the floor. I organize the pennies in the pan, cut a piece to fit, put it on the pennies then flip it over. I would make 5 or 6 and take them to the floor. The would be upside down with the plastic on the bottom. I would squirt the glue on the pennies, grab the plastic by 2 corners and flip it into place next to the last row. I would tug at the plastic and slid it around till it was tight in place. Then I would remove the plastic. The 3 coats of polyurethane makes it easy to sweep and mop. I ring the mop out well and try not to soak it, just in case. I have had it down 4 years. Hope this helps.
Contact plastic comes in rolls to line shelves. It comes in colors but I like to use the clear so I can see what I am doing.
That is the unfolded table with the 2 guys sitting at it. Here is another for you.
Thank! Yes, I have my penny floor on here too.
I took this photo today.
The wooden table was fine. The glass and wrought iron table was just so heavy. You could not get people/kids to lift the chairs. The metal would scrape and gouge it all up. The wood chairs slide and glide over it no problem. I personally would hate to cover the pennies with a rug.
I bought a lot from banks. I just had to look down the holes in the $25 dollar boxes and make sure they were a mixture of old ones. I didn't want all shinny.
30,000 give or take. Plus 4 dimes in a tight spot.

I made "tiles" in a cookie sheet with contact plastic, then glued them down in squares. I rolled 3 coats of polyurethane on top.
Thanks for the compliment! That is were I put it. I had spend 3 months covering the floor with 30,000 pennies an didn't need a table covering up all that work. Plus we don't use a table much so it is nice to be able to put it "away". Thanks again, Cindy
fold away table
I eat all mine in a day or two but IF you can hold off, refrigerate or freeze it. I use London Broil and trim all the fat off.
