Make a table lamp from vinyl records

Are you wondering what to do with the rest of those vinyl records that you didn't use to make dinnerware? While I thought this was an outstanding idea, I don't think that I could possibly use the literally hundreds of records that my husband has in his possession and won't bear to part with.

You can make a cool looking table lamp with those unwanted records and be the envy of your friends with step by step instructions from Instructables. The author walks you through from start to finish on how to put the record in the oven over a glass, drilling the holes, soldering and taping, and the final assembly of this awesome lamp.

Honestly, while I think a vinyl lamp is a fabulous idea, I would be scared to leave it around my child and my cats. There is no lamp shade, and the glare of the blue bulb would be too much for my sensitive eyes to bear. I would also be afraid to let it burn for a long period of time, and would be afraid that the heat of the bulb would melt the vinyl record.

What do you think of this table lamp idea?
