I bought the book about a month ago, and I totally love it. The record bowls are the second thing that I've made from it. I can't show off the first just yet, because it was for a swap. ^_~ But as I was looking around the living room to place the first bowl, I realized that I had very little table space to put them on, but I did have a lonely hook hanging out of my kitchen ceiling...





I may end up replacing the chain with some that's a bit more heavy duty and bead the wire that I added to the top to get it to hang down to a length I could actually reach into. It's not exactly perfect, but I like it anyway. I got the records at Goodwill. They're Rick Springfield and Foreigner. I have a project in mind for the sleeves already, so nothing's being wasted.

Hey that's really cool.  I've never been a big fan of record bowls, but now it looks like something I might have to try.   Consider my mind changed.

It seems that different people have an idea of what I am, and what I should be. And then there's me.

These are really neat!  I like the record bowls but I like the more practical use also.  But that might be because I've been thrifting trying to find a hanging fruit cage for a long time!

Woot! Mind changin'!

I've been looking for one for a bit too, at least one that wasn't plain. When you can't find it, craft it, right?

I hope you guys do make some... record fruit bowls for all!

This is great! How did you make holes w/o breaking the record?

I used a smaller bit on my Dremel. It was a lot harder to slip on the keyrings than drill the holes, really, but the records held up to all the beating up pretty nicely.
