Building a glass guitar slide can be a fun and rewarding project. Here are some tips and tricks to help you get started.
1. Start by purchasing a glass slide blank from an online or local seller. You can find many options in different shapes, sizes, and colors. Some sellers even offer customizations such as text or images on the slide.
2. Once you have your blank, it's time to start cutting! Use a sharp hobby knife or glass-cutting saw to cut the blank into the desired shape.
3. Next, it's time to polish the surface of the slide with fine-grit sandpaper. This will give it a smooth finish and make it easier to work with when assembling the slide.
