Default Guitar pick boxes

I pick a little blue grass from time to time and came up with this idea
to keep up with my picks..I have made them from cedar, mesquite, walnut,
cherry, cypress and box elder. I also make picks from walnut and mesquite.
I don't care for them myself. they are too stiff. but some of my friends really
like them. I have looked on the net to see if anybody else makes these and
haven't found any. Maybe i had an original idea for once in my life..lol

Default guitar pick box

Rick, I think the pick boxes are really cool. Is this your pattern? I'd like to make one of those for myself. I usually always carry at least one guitar pick in my pocket at all times. I carry it a while and then I'll loose it. One of these little pick boxes might just be what I need to keep up with them a little longer. Some people are gonna wonder why I carry a guitar pick in my pocket all the time, well, you never know when you might run across a guitar that needs picking. If you'd share your pattern I'd appreciate it. Thanks in advance, David

Those are really fine. I'd like to try making a few as well. I don't play anymore because of my hearing but I have friends who pick and strum.

Rick - very cool idea. I use to pick a little myself. I also would like to see the pattern if you don't mind. It seems like anything in a musical theme sells well around here.

Thanks,
Ray F

Thank you so much for your compliments...i dont have an actual pattern except for the box shape..
i used a compass and went around a guitar pick to make the box big enough to put a pick in and
to keep it symmetrical...the process for making them would take too much space to go into here but it you would like to email me i will be glad to tell you how its done..i make all kinds of flip
top boxes..from tooth fairy boxes to knife cases...thanks again

Guitar man i understand about losing picks..i always said i could go to the music store today
and buy a five gallon bucket full and if i was gonna pick tonite i would have to go get one out
of the clothes dryer...lol...these pick boxes help to keep up with them pretty good..i make thin
ones that hold 4 or 5 to carry in your pocket..and thicker ones to put in the guitar case

Great idea Rick. On average a pick lasts me about 2 days before I put it down somewhere and it's lost forever. This could be just what I need. I'm thinking I may need to add a neck chain too. I guess it's people like us who keep the manufacturers in business - Lol
