I had originally planned to keep the records flat, but then I saw this great post by A Law Students Journey and changed my mind! If you fancy making your own, here's what you'll need....
- Records (different sizes)
- Metal threaded rod
- Nuts and Washers
- Buttons (optional)
For the larger records, I just used my hands to mould them, but for the smaller/bowl shapes I found moulding them over a Pyrex bowl helped. I should also mention that although they don't get very hot, it's worth keeping an oven mitt on hand just in case :)
.... and bookends!
