Introduction: Guitar Pick With Character
This is a Christmas present I made for my brother who just started playing guitar and who likes the joker
I apologise for the pictures, I didn't take some while I was working so I took them afterward
Step 1: Find Materials
Find your piece of wood or other material and a spare guitar pick for size
I used a piece of manzanita I had on hand
Step 2: Trace Outline
Using a pencil trace the outline of the pick on the wood
Step 3: Profile
use a saw to cut the basic profile, and then using a sander sand to the lines
Step 4: Thin Out Pick
using the sander thin out the pick, round off the edges, then hand sand gradually increasing grits
Step 5: Add Character
decide what you want to add to guitar pick, then use a woodburner to burn it in.
Something I learned afterwards, for a left handed person burn it the way I did. for a right handed person flip it
Step 6: Add Finish
use an oil to add finish to your wood. Not only will it protect it but it brings out the grain really nice
Step 7: Finished
your done. this is the perfect gift for someone who plays guitar
