We don't have very many candle holders in our apartment, but we do have plenty of tall candles. Go figure. As long as I'm playing around with making a fruit bowl or lampshade I might as well continue with throwing records into the oven and reshaping them.

This time around there are no cuts to make. All you need is a record, an oven, some corks, a knife, and an apple.

The apple is very important.

Step 1: Cut Some Cork

Looking around my apartment for cylindrical forms that are the same width as a tapered candle, I found that corks are perfect.

When you find four good specimens, cut off a half-inch or so, this part is up to you. Cut one first to use as a guide for the size of the others. Corks can have angled or rounded ends and the cut helps to flatten out one side.
<p>Some music LPs are worth a fortune to the right person so make sure that they are not worth any thing before doing any of these projects as you might find out when it's too late that you have destroyed a collectable album.</p>
i love the last step.
Drill four holes in the record and fasten the corks with a screw so that they'll 'keep up' while the record softens. Remove the screws (and corks) as the record has herdened again.
except that the idea is to not drill holes in the record.
Oh about Rachel Ray... She is sooooo annoying... and wayyyyyy over-rated!
this is too cool i LOVE the whole idea of melting records i've been wanting to do it for many years now... i think this has finally made me do it!
Did you get your Vinyl ideas from Rachel Ray?
You asked me that before. I've never heard of Rachel Ray before you mentioned her.
OK. Now I know why this all <a rel="nofollow" href="http://www.rachaelrayshow.com/?q=bowling-with-evette">looks so familiar</a> to you. The air date was less than two months ago.<br/><br/>This idea has been bounced around for years, by the way. <br/>
Rachel ray is a chunky chick with a scarily big mouth and a noisome voice and she's obsessed with EVOO, olive oil to the rest of us. BTW they've been selling record chip bowls in catalogs for years, but you've certainly taken this a step beyond.
Everyone loves her. I can't stand her.
Sorry about that, last time I asked I didn't see my post show up and I didn't care enough to repost it, and it didn't show up this time until I logged in again. I'm not sure why though.

Interesting... The next project will be a record player made from a few records :-P
Hmm, chlorine.
