This is a cool way to hang up necklace's, and get rid of old records. 

My friend really loves 80's music, we are always going downtown to pick out records. She also has many necklace's that do not have a place to rest. So I two things that she likes and put them together for a one of a kind gift for the holidays

This has great form and functionality.

Step 2: Cutting the Plywood

Lay out the larger records for the backing. Once you have done that take and cut out the plywood so that it does not over hang past the records from the front. 

Give a light sanding around the edges so there are no splinters from cutting. 

Step 4: Making and attaching the smaller records

For the "hooks" to hold the necklace's take a smaller record and start by using the heat gun to soften the center from top to bottom of the record. With the record soft bent it around the pipe into the shape of a "V."  Let it cool and move onto the next step. 

I found that if the record is heated up and becomes very soft, after it cools back down it is very brittle, play around with this step a little to see what works the best and to get a feel for how the records react.


Step 5: Making the hooks

It is helpful to have the wood burner very hot. That way there is a smoother cut. What you want to do it make "U" shaped cuts. I made two on each side of the record.

I love this I have some vinyl and will try this, I think bending the the 45's was priceless. I'm going to drilling holes so I can get both earrings and neckbands or just about all my jewelry. I think changing horizontally would give me the use of the center as well, great idea.Thanks!
