These are my newest adventures for raising money for the EOD Warrior Foundation. Both are made from Mammoth Ivory (I know it’s not wood, but I used my woodworking tools and all the jigs I used were wood). The first picture is a guitar pick with a lasered badge, the laser work was done at the lowest setting and resembles Scrimshaw. The second picture is a badge carved with my CNC approximately 1 3/4” wide and 1/4” thick. Both items are getting great reviews, so this years fund raiser should go well.
I did coat the guitar picks with beeswax when I buffed them, this is supposed to reduce the odor that you get handling Mammoth ivory, hope it works.
