    This is so cool. Wish I had a functioning oven! :) I want to try making a wrist cuff, too.

    Wow this looks great. I’m gonna go out and buy some records just for this.

    I don`t want to disturb your work or fun but you might want to check these pages regarding the possible health concerns from heating vinyl or PVC.

    Hi, This brings back memories. In fifth grade at South Ward Elementary School in Clearwater, Florida my teacher was Mrs. Clarke. Eisenhower was the president, so it was in the early 50’s. This was our take-home-to-the-parents Christmas present project. A hotplate with almost boiling water was used, and we carefully submerged 1/4 of the record, removed it and pushed the side up on a flat surface. We repeated 4 times till we had a flat bottom and 4 upturned side. Not fancy like these, but I thought they were just wonderful.

    I love this idea. I may have to try it.
    Thanks!

    You wouldn’t put your baby into an over and turn it into a bowl.

    So why would you do it to vinyl albums? T_T

    So Cool, thanks! I can’t wait to try it. Oh, and this is WAY better than letting the records go to the landfill!

    Definately agree with checking out Toxin saftey of melting vinyl in home oven regarding cooking your food after melting record, toxic fumes, fumes around baby’s lungs, and
    melted record coming in contact with unwrapped food. Perhaps a second oven on the back porch? It does look cool. B.
