About

Handcrafted from recycled album art covers, coasters with warped vinyl bowl.

The Album Art Cover Coasters are the awesome concept of using the album cover from tired old vinyl records and turning them into an eye catching nine piece puzzle disguised as album cover coasters. When was the last time you held a coaster and you immediately flashed back to when you were a young hip kid? When was the last time you gave a gift to your dad and you immediately became the "golden' child". Enough about the wonders of our Recycled Album Art Cover Coasters. Let's get down to how in the world the amazing coaster/puzzle sets are created.

To start with, we go through our collection. Okay we have spent our fair share of time at auctions and garage sales to build up an amazing collection of scratched and warped records. We select a batch of memories, no I mean albums. Next, we take them to the cutting floor. Hubby has his way with them, slicing, gluing and sanding them to perfection. Hubby and I take turns on who gets to caress the lovelies and put on their cute little felt or cork feet and the four layers of glossy finish. The final step is sliding the little beauties in the curing racks.

Welcome to Recycled Album Art Shop, aka INOUDID's Attic, The Home of the Original Recycled Album Cover Coasters set. Hubby and I make up a great team; I come up with the ideas on how to re-purpose items and he then lends his skills as a master furniture maker and cabinetmaker to the project.

So...what do you do when you have boxes of vintage Rock N Roll albums and no turntable? Well we auctioned off a large number of the LP’s that were unquestionably in great condition. But we still have a tremendous amount left. It seemed such a waste to through them away…the albums evoked such great memories of our youth...how could we use our skills?

AN IDEA WAS BORN! You make ROCK N ROLL ALBUM COVER COASTERS.

Our coasters are FUNctional, memory provoking works of art. No two coaster sets are the same as each set is made from the original album covers. Each coaster set is unique in its own way. Some album covers are branded by the previous owner. Almost all the covers show some signs of wear. Anyway you look at it, you know that you are getting the 'real' thing.

We started our venture in 2008 when we were left with the remnants of hubby's vinyl record collection. We had a number of albums that the vinyl was too scratched to sell. Instead of having them go to the landfill, we created the idea of preserving the album by creating a set of nine coasters. We use the actual album cover and record to create our coaster sets. We do not print out a digital imagine of an album, then re-size it to fit a ceramic tile or a square chunk of wood.

Because we use the authentic album cover almost all of our coaster sets come with the warped record basket. Even though the vinyl record no longer is playable, they now function as a great basket to store the coasters. We take pride in providing high quality and handcrafted coasters and record baskets.

As hard as it may be to believe, not everyone wants to have a nifty basket, some prefer the sleek handcrafted Baltic Birch holder. The holder is the brainchild and handcrafted by hubby. The holder measures 5" x 6-1/2" X 2-1/2".

Sellers that blatantly ignore the copyright laws tarnishes the reputation of all crafters that legitimately produce their own original ideas. Hubby and I hope that you will support the many artisans found on Etsy that respect the creative works of others.

Remember to think ‘Made in the U.S.A.’ and handmade for your entire gift giving needs this year. What an easy way to help our planet and own a piece of music history. We strive to provide a product that is of the highest quality. This is the perfect gift for the person who has everything…or at least they thought they had everything!
