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 1: Materials and Tool
> About 5 larger records for the back.
> 4-6 small records
> 1/8" rivets
> All purpose cement and plastic glue
> 1/4" plywood for backing
> Craftsman heat gun
> Craftsman Drill with 1/8" drill bit
> Rivet Gun
> Wood burner
> Craftsman Pliers
>Craftsman Jig saw
Step 2: Cutting the Plywood
Give a light sanding around the edges so there are no splinters from cutting.
Step 3: Glue records onto plywood
Step 4: Making and attaching the smaller records
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.
