Ken Wingard's amazing music inspired coffee table uses actual albums to cherish Christmas music memories forever.

MATERIALS:

  • Vinyl records with covers
  • Album frames
  • Table legs
  • 1” x 2” wood
  • ¾” plywood cut to 13 ¾” x 13 ¾”
  • Nail gun and nails
  • Wood glue
  • 1” forstner bit
  • Power drill
  • ¾” screws
  • Pencil
  • Tape measure
  • Circular saw

Optional:

  • Miter saw
  • Silicon caulking

INSTRUCTIONS:

1. If you want these to be waterproof, which will protect the albums from spills, line where the glass and frame meet with some silicone caulking. Set aside to dry.

2. Cut your plywood down to size.

3. Use your forstner bit to drill a hole in through the board. This will be for your finger to push the albums up and change them out, so placing it closer to one edge is helpful.

4. Cut four pieces of 1” x 2” down to size to frame the plywood. If you are cutting 45-degree angles, the outer edge of each piece should measure 15 ¼”.

5. To create your tabletop, apply wood glue to the edges of your plywood and use your nail gun to secure the 1” x 2” pieces in a few spots on each side of the plywood so it’s framed.

6. Flip the tabletop over and screw the four legs in.

7. Put your album into the frame.

8. Flip your table upside right and set your album into the tabletop.

9. If you’ve made multiple arrange them as desired and enjoy!
