si stand1 Laser cutting old vinyl LPs

Personally, these laser-cut plastic end tables by Israel’s Studio Groovy (Fair warning: I couldn’t actually find them on their Flash-y website) are not to my taste, but I really like the fact that that they put some old vinyl records in their laser cutter and managed to make something fairly cool out of them. Bonus: The table on the left uses the cut-out from the table on the right as decoration, so there’s very little waste. [via Recyclart]

Update: I might do better in life, in general, if I would, you know, use my eyes more. As a commenter pointed out, close inspection of the photograph indicates that the detail on the left-hand table is not, in fact, exactly the cut-out from the table on the left. That doesn’t mean you couldn’t do it that way, at least… [Thanks, Click!]
