I love when my father plays guitar so I felt creative and made a couple of classic pics for Father's Day.
Step 1: Materials
Use any wood, but using hardwood will make it much less likely to break while playing.
Step 2: Trace and Cut
Trace any guitar pic that has a satisfying shape or create a stencil. Then using a coping saw cut it out roughly
Step 3: Sand
Sanding is SO important, it really pops the grain. The grits I used were 100, 220, 400, 800, and even used a scrap of leather to polish the wood. (Because oil will make it difficult to grip resulting in a guitar pic lost in an acoustic hole)
Step 4: Use or Share
Whether you use, display, sell, or give to a friend, try to adjust your pic to your comfort.
