Introduction: Bottle Cap Disc Golf Pins

About: You can't even handle knowing about me right now!

Do you like Disc Golf? Do you like drinking beer or other things that have bottle caps on them?  Then this game's for you
Introducing Bottle cap golf (I made it myself, Yay!!) learn how to Make a mini 9-hole course for about 10 to 20 bucks.

Step 1: Things You Need


Can opener
Dremel with metal cut-off blades or a pair of tin snips
1/4 inch drill bit
1/16 inch drill bit
small wrench or pair of pliers
razor blade

Materials (for making 1 pin)

28-32oz tin can
1/4' x 6" carage bolt
3 1/4 inch nuts
plastic bottle lid
60 small paper clips
12 inches of small tubing

Step 2: Cutting the Top

use can opener to cut of top of can.
Be sure you cut the can from the side instead of top of the can so you won't have any sharp edges to cut yourself on.

Step 3: Cutting the Base

after emptying the contents and cleaning the can, take ruler and measure 2 inches up from the bottom of the can.
draw an even line around the can at the 2 inch mark.
Cut the can around the line completely with Dremel or tin snips.

Step 4: Drilling Bolt Holes

Take drill with 1/4 inch bit and drill a hole in the center of both the base and the lid, as well as the plastic bottle cap

Step 5: Drilling Chain Holes

With the marker, place 12 dots on the inside lip of can lid in a form of a clock
use drill with 1/16 inch bit to drill out all 12 holes

Step 6: Bolting the Base

Place bolt up through the bottom of the hole in the base. The bolt will not fit all the way in, so you will have to force it to fit.
Place bottle cap right side up on bolt untill it is touching the base.
screw 1 bolt down onto the plastic cap untill tight.

Step 7: Making the Chains

Clip paper clips together in strips of 5
make 12 of these strips.
bend 1 paperclip into a ring that fits around the bolt loosely.
Clip one side of each strip to the ring you just made.
place the bolt through the ring.

Step 8: Attaching the Top

screw 1 nut onto bolt about 1/2 inch.
place can lid onto the bolt.
screw on final nut until it is level with the top of the bolt.
Flip over and tighten the nut underneath to the lid firmly.

Step 9: Attaching the Chains

take the loose ends of the chain and slip them through the holes in the top.
Be careful to do them in the right order so the chains don't overlap and get tangled.

Step 10: Adding Safty Stripping

Take razor blade and slice small tubing down the side in a straight line
place tubing onto the sharp edge around the base to prevent cuts.

Step 11: Time to Cutomize

Now that you are done with your first Pin, Make more. you can also paint them with numbers or drill drainage holes on the bottom if you are to lazy to bring them inside after you play. You could also make little hanger brackets out of unused paper clips so you can hang them from things. Right now I'm Building a carrying case out of some large PVC Piping. What ever you choose to do with your project, make sure to have fun and drink responsibly (...or don't, if that's your thing).
