I have a friend who builds and plays guitars and lives in Nova Scotia , he ask me to create him a pick box. This is what I came up with. It`s made from 4 different kinds of exotic woods with a cow bone insert. I tried my hand at skrimshaw. Not exactly the way the pro`s do it, but it came out neat none the less. I first ingraved the ship into the bone then took a quill pen and some black ink and filled in the ingraving. Shot it with a light coat of clear laquer, then went back and added some fine detail then after it dried I shot 3 more coats of laquer on it. I really like the results and plan on doing more.
