I recently made 20 wooden guitar picks guitar picks out Olivewood. When Olivewood picks are combined with Watco butcherblock foodsafe finish, the result is beautiful guitar picks!

That wood is awesome. I made some back a few years and a friend told me that different woods for the picks make a difference in the tone.

Those are sweet! As a guitar player myself I can appreciate this project! Would like to try it myself some day. Are they in various thicknesses or all the same? Awesome job!

Yes, the thicknesses vary some, but for the most part they are the same! Thanks for commenting!
