for some reason the search feature has been unavailable for about four hours....

But. I would really love to make a record bowl for someone for christmas, because I think he'd love it. I really dislike the 'ruffled' edges however, and am wondering how to get this finished product:

I think that this finished product is so much more sleek and gift appropriate!

can anyone help at all with that??? has anyone had success achieving that? it would be greatly appreciated Smiley

Thanks!

I am thinking it is somehow slowly heated, and as it is heated, it is pressed into a mold of sort. Slowly so it doesn't buckle in on itself or tear a hole, and then a mold, in two parts, to shape it into that shape.

I agree that a mould is probably necessary. By machine its probably heated, then a top and bottom mould form around it and press the shape into it.
To do it by hand seems rather tricky...I would suggest trying it, forming the record over a bowl and just localize the heat from the base of the bowl working downwards (or upwards if the bowl were rightside up...maybe I'm just confusing you) so that the whole record wouldn't be soft and malleable at the same time...
I've never done it, so I'm not certain of the results, but that's how I'd try it.

try using two metals bowls heat the record then add the second bowl slowly adding to the top bowl with some kinda of weight or hot water..  thoe real things are made with machine & molds... try that out & see if that works...
