Here are some guitar picks and a pick box I made for a friend. The picks are primarily made from Olivewood; there are several walnut, apple, and bubinga in the mix. The box is made from walnut, oak, olivewood, redwood, and bubinga. Thanks for looking! Dale

I have been thinking about making some wood picks! You use a punch or shape and slice?

Music store where I do all the wood repairs on stringed instruments took in a fellow who makes wooden picks.
Not fast sellers, but steady.
Yours look beautiful, nice job!

Thanks guys! Andre, my process of building them goes as follows:
1. cut wood the thickness of a pick on a mitre saw
2. draw shape onto pick and cut out with scroll saw
3. sand and finish
Hope this helps!
Thanks!
