You will have to forgive me just a little as this isn’t a “wood project” – but I DID use a woodworking tool to do it! :-)
I was high-bidder on a few “miscellaneous” boxes at an auction today and in the bottom of one I found a stack of 78rpm records. They appeared brand new with no scratches at all. The labels were in French and I had this image of the Paris Skyline in my head and how cool it might look to have half the record “go away” and leave the image behind.
I KNEW using a scrollsaw on such an old record would be tricky. It was! The pieces that didn’t chip simply melted together with the heat from the blade. I wound up going with the very slowest setting on my saw and proceeded VERY slowly. Eventually, I persevered with hardly any mishaps.
So, what do you all think about this? I don’t think I have ever seen anything like it, but I don’t quite know what other people would think when they see this. Comments welcomed on this one please!
