  • If you're on a hike, or caught in a survival situation, it's really helpful to have containers

  • that are lightweight and weather resistant. So in this project let's turn a couple of

  • empty soda bottles, into compact, lightweight, and waterproof, soda cap containers.

  • Let's start this project with a hotel key, and a couple of plastic soda bottles. The

  • first thing we need to do is cut the tops off, and if we turn them upside down and clamp

  • them in a bench vise, it should be incredibly easy. Now if we use something like a hacksaw,

  • we can use the bottom side of the flange as a cutting guide, and the goal here is to make

  • the cut as clean as possible. When we're through to the other side, let's double check the

  • flange to make sure it's completely flat, and if there are any ridges, we can easily

  • shave them down with the saw blade. Now we're gonna need a second cap, and this time

  • I'm using a bottle with a black lid just for a little variety. This should allow us to

  • color code the two ends of our container. Now depending on your purpose, it could be

  • extremely important that the lids sit perfectly together. And to make sure that happens, let's

  • go ahead and sand the bottoms with something like 150 grit sandpaper, until they're perfectly

  • flat. They don't have to be smooth though. In-fact, the rougher they are, they better

  • they're gonna bond with an epoxy. While we're here it's a good idea to roughen both

  • sides of our hotel key as well, so let's go ahead and do that, then carefully trace around

  • one of the caps with a marker. As we cut it out, you can see we'll end up with a plastic

  • disc the exact same size as the caps, and this will become the divider that splits our

  • container into two separate compartments. Now to make this as strong and lightweight

  • as possible, let's try bonding it with a 2 part epoxy. This will need to be blended thoroughly

  • for about a minute to make sure it sets up properly. Now, without wasting too much time,

  • let's apply a liberal amount of epoxy to the base of the caps, then carefully set the round

  • divider on top, and press it into place. If you already have epoxy on the other cap, just

  • join it to the other side of the divider, and simply leave it to harden. In about 2

  • hours, your container will be firm enough to handle, and a few hours after that, it

  • should be fully ready to use. Now for an even stronger bond, try clamping both caps so they

  • set together under pressure. If you don't have a bench vise or a set of bar clamps,

  • try using a rubber band to keep things tight until the epoxy hardens. You can see here

  • how the epoxy at the bottom has completely sealed everything off. That means this container

  • will hold two different items, and keep them completely separate. Now I added some special

  • ingredients to mine and tucked it away in one of our first-aid kits to help out in emergency

  • situations. This will give us the power to ignite a survival fire, without ever having

  • to strike a match. Look for how this works in the matchless survival fire project.

  • I also tried another variation and found the simplest container could be made with 2 caps

  • and some hot glue. It won't be as strong, but you can make them start to finish in under

  • 3 minutes. This version is still super lightweight, water resistant, and will work really well

  • for storing things like pills or small candies. You can see it's hollow all the way through,

  • so the contents can be accessed from either end. This works well to protect your matches

  • from the elements, or even make improvised hide and seek containers for geocaching. If

  • the container ever does get wet, everything inside will be kept safe and dry. Now both

  • variations weigh only half an ounce, or about 14 grams, but they can they still hold up

  • to 10 ml of fluid, which is the same amount as both of these glass bottles put together.

  • By the way, if you epoxy the two bottles end to end, you'll have another variation that

  • still looks really cool, and will last for a really long time. Well now you know how

  • to turn two empty soda bottles, into lightweight, multipurpose containers, that don't really

  • cost anything to make, but will do a great job protecting your stuff. Well that's it

  • for now. If you liked this project, perhaps you'll like some of my others. Check them
