when i want to mold records i boil water and drop the record in [ usually my record is cut up into smaller pieces], but it get ultra soft and moldable -- it hardens really quickly too. i get a pair of garden gloves and put the parts that i want to mold in the water over and over again until it is right.

get off the internet.

That's a good idea, posey.  Perhaps what I should try is cutting the pieces up, and then dipping them into a stock pot of boiling water (though, that may take forever to boil...) and then molding them, and gluing together.  Or even, just cutting them up and putting them in the oven, and then individually molding the pieces, and later assembling.

I recently tried making one of these by cutting the record and epoxying it together. Some records are somewhat difficult to cut and have a tendensy to brake where you don't want them to!  Undecided However, with much glue and patients, I managed to get a somewhat decent result!  Cheesy My next attempt at this, I'm using a jewlers saw!  Wink As for this one, I'm going to do a collage of the beatles on it to cover up the fairly obvious cracks where the very incoropertive record broke on me! And when it's done my bf will love it and cherish it forever because it will be the beatles!  Wink I think your melting idea is really cool though! Maybe I'm just getting old and weak, but cutting these things just aren't as easy as they use to be!  Undecided

If you want to cut records, get ones that were made in the US. 
For some reason, rocords pressed overseas are nice and thick,
whereas ours are really flimsy!  An utility knife works really well
on these.

I love your version.  It does look like a little chair. =)
