Record Remix Wall Shelf

As one of the projects done in Design 3, we had to make a readymade product and submit it to the Readymade magazine. I took 4 records, glued them together, made 2 cuts, 4 holes and 3 heat bends to create a record shelf strong enough for your ihome

By cutting and glueing records together, I was able to find the thickness that provided the most strength while maintaining its shape when formed.

Bend test on record thicknesses.

By applying heat to the vinyl record, it becomes maleable enough to take on any shape and form. Once cool, the record regains its rigidity and stays to the shape.

By using a vinyl adhesive that is heat resilliant, the records are able to stay glued together while being formed with heat.
