Don't you just love making these?! I don't have this bood yet, but would LOVE it! I was going to make a few of these for friends for Christmas gifts, but alas, I forgot in the craziness of the mall and knitting scarves. Great job on these - they're all very different - you can to ANYTHING with them!

Thats a good idea, but i dont want to mess these ones up.  maybe i'll get some more records to make flowers.  I think 45s would work better for that anyway because they're smaller.  they would be cool though   Smiley

These are indeed fun to make. One word of caution: don't leave them near an open flame! I gave one to my friend and her candle set fire to it. I guess they can be flammable...

I make these compulsively!
About the HOLE!  After the bowl cools I put a small amount of tape on the bottom of the bowl covering the whole.  Then I pour in and epoxy resin, the kind I buy is at Michaels, and Roberts.  It's EnviroTex Lite, Pour-On.  This will also protect the label so it is waterproof.  As a result it is my boyfriends favorite cereal bowl.

Those look great! I tried this with an old 45 but it didn't turn out so well.

K-ritter, great idea to use epoxy! I never would have thought of that! Can I just pick it up at any home improvement store?

I bought mine at savers (I think...) otherwise most thrift stores have them.  I would also check garage sales this kind of year, you could find some pretty good deals.

You can always find them at the Salvation Army.  The one nearest me has a whole bin table with the books...

These bowls are great and can be decorated in many ways. Just keep one thing in mind - these records are plastic and the fume's released during the heating/melting process are toxic - so be sure to remove animals from the area and use ventilation!

i just saw in a magazine (for a crazy price) coasters made out of the center of records it looks like they just cut around the middle.

I couldn't think of what would safely cut a record though or where to ask except maybe here......

It is called a hole saw - it is a tube (like an open tuna fish can with teeth) that attaches to a drill motor.  This book has the instructions (I checked it out of my local library)

You know, I've seen these around since the dawn of time, and never really was that excited by them.  I have PLENTY of containers.

BUT not enough flower pots.  I think a record bowl would be GREAT as a flower pot, and even has a built in drain.

I think I might try it.  I've picked up some really unloved records from thrift stores here and there.  hella scratched. 

i close with a plea: please make sure your records aren't worth anything.  I'd hate to see a melted kraftwerk record!  I think it would break my heart.

I have a couple of these to keep keys ect instead of constantly loosing them, but I can't wait to hear about the bowls as flower pots. That would look awsome!
