Record Bowl

So, my friend gave me a Star Wars record this weekend. I was of course excited, as I love everything Star Wars. I realized quickly though, two vital facts about the gift:

  1. I do not own a record player. In fact, I don’t any tangible music player, other than an ipod, which doesn’t count.
  2. The gift sucked. It turned out to be just quotes from the movie which, while cool in visual form, do translate to audio only for my listening pleasure.

I immediately decided upon another alternative. I had seen a post a while back on making records into bowls. I figured I’d try my hand at it. Since I’m chomping at the bit to add more ordered lists to this post, here were my steps:

  1. Prehead oven to 300 degrees.
  2. Place metal bowl upside down on cookie sheet.
  3. Center record on top of bowl, and place the whole shebang in the oven.
  4. Bake until it melts in the shape you want. This took me only five minutes, so don’t get ADD and burn your house down.

And Viola! A masterpiece for my coffee table. My remotes are no longer homeless.
