@letsgobowlingx - Thanks!  These slides were all in the cardboard mounts, but we have a ton more that are in plastic.  Travis just started drilling holes in those, too.  You actually get a nicer, cleaner hole with the plastic mounts, but if you do this, just be careful because little plastic things tend to fly out from the drill.  Protective eyewear is recommended.  Also, sometimes the plastic melts around the drill bit and that needs to be cleaned every so often.

Also just wanted to mention here that someone on another site said that Kodachrome slides will fade faster in the sun than other brands of slide film (like Ektachrome or Fujichrome).  So you may want to keep that in consideration if you're making one of these.  Of course, I have no idea how fast any of this stuff will fade.  I figure I can replace the slides as they fade, or, if it's a really big problem, and 2 weeks from now I'm looking at a bunch of slide mounts with no images left on them, I'll just paint over the film with some transparent paint I have.  I'm adaptable.  Smiley

This is amazing. I'd *love* a tutorial. There is an absolutely awesome random art store I've been too, and they had big boxes of these things.

I love personal swaps, I currently need art (paintings or something to hang on a wall) but I'd be up for anything.

Looked cool in the thumbnail, but got better and better! Love how you used the slides!

Can I ask how you scan them? is it possible for a non- photographer to do? My parents have boxes of slides from a trip they took to europe back in the early 70's.

How did you get all of those slides? Thats so awesome but I probably wouldn't have ever thought of it because I haven't seen slides like that since 03 and i was a freshman in college scanning them into an image database. sigh the good ole days
