Good idea, Jack ! What species of wood did you used ? Did you apply any finish ? If so, it must be hard. I should try one of these some day.

Thanks for posting.

Best,

Serge

Hello Serge

I use ash wood ( I hope it’s the good traduction : FrĂȘne in french)

Little piece and fine thickness ..

Have a nice day

Thanks, Jack. Ash is a good choice. I’m sure it’s hard enough since baseball bats are made from it. And I do have some ash ! :)

Best,

Serge

I made some last year from walnut and padauk (each, not together), they had a nice warm sound. I’m sure your friend will love them.

These are awesome, I think I’m going to make a couple! @ Rick M, was the padauk hard enough? How long do the picks last?
