It's hard to tell from the photo, but it looks as though there are gaps between the bottom and the sides in certain places. Counters are naturally attracted to little spaces like that and will wedge themselves in. You might try filling those spaces before finishing to avoid having to fish out counters with a pin or something.

This is a problem. I need to fix the sides down much more firmly.

So some things I noticed....
Elbows on the new ASL table! Major violation of etiquette.
Nice product placement of LFT, should have worked in some Battleschool dice and pocket RB.
That is an empty coffee mug not tea...tut, tut. (The residue on the inside of the mug denotes a latte type effect.)
Otherwise nice go for your first launch...

Elbows. The edges were padded with this precise use in mind. Comfort for the players.
The battleschool dice are in the tower, obviously they weren't paying me as much as LFT.
When you've access to a £5,000 coffee machine and decent decaf, why go with tea?

I bought this and my elbows are now happy:
