Walnut and Cherry Guitar Pick

One of my “someday” projects is to make a guitar… Not that I have to wait to make it, per se, but it would make more sense if I could actually play it by the time I finish. So rather than keep thinking it’ll be a someday project, I decided to start small 😉

Two ply for added strength. Walnut on one side, cherry on the other. The hardest part was sanding it with almost nothing to hold onto! I did manage to get off all the glue squeeze out without deforming the overall shape too much.

Intentionally left unfinished. As it will surely get a nice patina from being manhandled, and any finish on the business end would suffer much abuse.

So, rather than still saying “someday”… I’ve taken out my “low milage” acoustic guitar I got (way) back in college, and have started taking lessons! I don’t expect this pick to last half as long as it takes me to get around to building my own guitar… but at least I’m moving forward!

  1. That’s a great idea. It’s much fancier than the plastic ones in the store. I just started playing guitar in January, and I am definitely going to try this idea.
