So beautiful, such a great idea. I've always thought CDs were underrated in their beauty and you've really highlighted that

This is the coolest use of old CDs I've seen -- great work! How well does this hold up outside?

Wow, what a stunning use for these old CD’s!

I've got a stack of old CD's and I've been thinking that there must be something that cam be done with them to avoid them going to land fill, but all of the other projects I've seen have been ... clumsy, ugly, and generally not very nice.

However, I think your project is a game changer, and I'm guessing we'll see more and more projects along similar lines.

Congratulations on the design, and congratulations for a great Ible.

Thank you very much for such a nice comment. I hope the tutorial has inspired you to make beautiful designs in your home.
You are most welcome ... :-)

I am in the extremely fortunate situation where I have a CNC router in the basement, which obviously removes the limitations of cutting along simple chord lines, and my first thought is to fashion the CD's into fish or reptile scales ... we'll see what I come up with ... :-)
