Been a while since I posted any of my work, been real busy with orders. Here is just a few of my past orders that I`ve done. Started doing some with center stripes now to give a better custom look. Burl wood and spectraply is the most requested woods for the stripes. Ironwood and Ironwood burl has become the first choice from my customers for the tops. So far this year I`ve sold more out of the states then in…lol.

Do you have a website? I’ve been very interested in a new slide. I have a brass slide, but its too tight.

How do these sound verses a metal slide?

All I have is my Face Book showcase page, you can leave me a message there.. As for sound they produce…Like a glass slide with mass.

Very nice! Why didn’t I think of turning one myself? I ended up buying a glass one. I guess I know what I will be makeing soon! Thanks for the inspiration.

Randy’s work is amazing. As a user of these half & half bone/ wood slides, I can honestly say these sound like no glass or metal slide ever will… They have a mellower tone & zero harshness to the ears. It’s a whole different world. And who can argue with the beauty of these things. Art for artists! Bravo Randy!!!!

These look great and each one is unique – I play minimal slide but these would give inspiration.

I do these by hand…No Lathe ! The only power tools I use is a Dremel and a bench top belt sander. The rest is all hand sanding….lots and lots of hand sanding!

Those are fancy guitar slides. Like the burls, colors and stripes, very attractive. No wonder you got many sales. Great job!
