I made this pick holder for my nephew, i saw the one on MereMortals and i liked it, but wanted to made it a little different, so i saw the plastic ones on amazon and thought, how hard could it be?
well it was not that hard!, the trouble i had was finding the springs, i was looking for them in all the hardware stores but none have them. so after i gave up on the idea, as i was doing some cleaning i found some clicky pens that had no ink, one of them was broke and i noticed the spring and then Eureka!, got my springs.
Putting it together i only had to do some minor adjustments, for the springs i had to make a little hole which were too little, so i just put some Epoxy on the springs and it worked pretty well. glue the top and bottom and then some sanding and varnish.
it works quite fine, i only had 3 plastic picks but i think it can hold like 20 or so, the wooden ones only 5.
here you can see it in action.
