It's a funny tiny project to make a guitar pick out of wood.
When I inherited a classical guitar from my Friend I restorated it and after that I started to make tiny things like this. A soundhole cover, wooden and bone saddle, a cejilla, some picks. I made the picks out of acacia and beef leg bone. I plan to make some with rubber grip on it. We can call it a spolier. :)
Yours picks are turned out great, nice ones!
Very cool! I hadn't really thought about using materials like that. Great stuff!
I love this project and will make some when I get time. I was wondering where you got that guitar bowl or if you made it?
