DIY: make a bowl from a scratched unplayable record

We, (husband and I) collect records; given that these precious music recordings are often second hand and old, it is inevitable that at times we may get a record that is just too damaged to be playable.

Instead of discarding the records, we upcycle!



1. Preheat an oven to 120 degrees celcius
2. Place the record on top of a metal colander
3. Carefully place the metal colander and record on a baking tray in the oven
4. After five minutes the record will have moulded over the colander 

In oven 

5. Remove the colander and record from the oven
at this stage the record is still malleable for about a minute so do any fine tuning of shape
6. Then place in room temperature (still on colander) to set 
Cooling down
7. Remove it from the colander and you have a record bowl!


The upcycled record as a stash bowl!
