I made 6 of this tablemats as a gift to my sister, for her new glass table. Hope she likes!
SAFETY ADVICE: This instructable uses sharp tools. Be careful using them. If you are not sure how to use, don't continue. NOT SUITABLE FOR KIDS.
Step 1: Tools and Materials
- Old records (LP, singles...).
- Sheets of cork.
- Black marker.
- Brush and white glue.
- Cutter and cutting mat.
Step 2: Preparing
Step 3: Glueing and Cutting
Then cut the cork around the record, slowly and firmly, on the first try taking care not to damage the vinyl surface (cork edges are not easy to retouch after).
Step 4: Finishing
As you can see in the picture, I put a single for the cup. As the hole of it is bigger, I'd prefer glue a piece of black paper instead of painting it with the marker.
If your records are old or ruined, try with a shoe shine sponge. It will look spectacular!
