World's first laser-cut wooden records

5 posts in this topic

You can now turn your favourite music downloads into playable records made from materials you have lying around the house.

Amanda Ghassaei, 24, from San Francisco has created the world's first laser-cut wooden records using songs from Radiohead and Joy Division.

And the software engineer has made the instructions available to download, making it possible to create your own at home.

From the article...

"The grooves in Ghassaei's wooden records are twice as thick as vinyl records because the laser's resolution is larger than the vinyl presses. The tracks still play but it means that only three minutes of a song can fit onto the side of a record. It also means the quality isn't as good as vinyl"

I think I will stick to Vinyl ....... :whistle:

coat the wood with some form of vinyl similar poly coating and we'll have a money spinner here :)

This is ok for people who still have a record player.

Would like to know how long the wooden records would last, surely the needle will wear into the wood over time.

at least he had decent taste, starting out with a bit of joy division!

(not so sure about radiohead though.....)
