Filing under the good uses of 3D printing technology, Amanda Ghassael has created another great world's first: vinyl records made of wood.

The resulting sounds are grainy and muffled, but very cool.
Ghassael has also made the vector files available as a free download, allowing home pioneers to create their own wooden records. [via Fact]
