I saw one on a Nesquick (powdered chocolate milk mix for those of you who are unfamiliar with the stuff) commercial and loved it.  I had a few records left over from when I was making bowls out of them (I figured out how to make stretched ones so they really look like bowls!).  Turns out, I only had five left, I wish I had more but..... Here's what I made from the five I had left.  It looks a lot better in person than it does on the wall.  I just couldn't get any -really good- pictures of it... It's supprisingly bright, it gives off enough light to see clearly in my livingroom.

That is just great!  I need to hit up my local resale shop for more records now I think ... then learn how to make a lamp...
