After seeing NDJunkGirl's amazing record holder, I thought I'd show you what I do with those LPs that are too scratched for playing.  I melt them in the oven and then mould them into bowl shapes.  I have black worktops in my kitchen so this bowl fits right in.  I love the fluted edges to this one!

Thanks for sharing.
