Nice Stocking stuffers!! Quick question what type of wood did you use for your guitar pics? Never thought about scrolling them and my cousin is a big guitar player and it would be a neat gift for him!

Hmm I'll bet mikey like it. Yes what kind of wood and thickness do you make the guitar picks out of, my brother plays quite well.

Those 2 picks are cocobola and rosewood. You'll need a good hard wood. Hard maple would probably work. I used a real pick for a template. They are sanded down to about 1/32".

For the switch cover, is that a labrador retriever by chance, because if it is I would love to have it because my grandparents have 2 chocolate labs that they love so much. Great work on the picks, what did you use to sand them with?

Huck,
That font is called hobby headline

Alex,
It's supposed to be a labrador retriever
I sanded the picks down with a belt sander until I got close, then hand sanded them and buffed.
