I created this state of Texas collage using 3 vintage, upcycled Texas beer cans. The cans are Gilley's, Shiner, and Texas Pride Light. The base is a side panel from an antique beer bottle shipping crate used by the Red Rose brewery.

A perfect gift for the Texan or beer lover in your life! Own a piece of Americana!

11 1/2" long, 12" tall, 1" thick

_____________

I use only vintage American steel and aluminum beer cans and antique American beer bottle shipping crates when creating my map pieces. I cut apart the cans and flatten them down to the wood using a strong bonding glue. I use grip locks to completely flatten the metal pieces so there are no sharp sides sticking up. I polish the metal, but again some of the cans show small scratches, fading, or spotting. Although I make every effort to avoid sharp metal edges, caution should still be used when handling this product.

I take the crates apart to create the bases for my pieces. Since the crates were actually used for years, they show normal wear like fading text, knot holes, cracks, etc. They are all still sturdy and solid however. I try to take out most of the nails and metal stripping and sand down the rough spots. Sometimes, if necessary, I reinforce the back of the board with wooden slats taken from beer crates.
