A unique Chess/Checker set was an experiment, but came out to be a rustic combination of two games into one. The contrast of the walnut and maple makes for a great chess/checker board.

Its 8x8" chess board with 32 wood turned pieces that are all different sizes.

Just flip over the pieces to change the game from chess to checkers.

The chess side of the pieces are wood burned by hand.

Sanded smooth and covered with mineral oil to preserve the natural color of the wood.

A great handmade game for all ages.

Thanks for looking,
You're pretty much awesome!

Please "Add to Cart" one guitar pick at a time and then purchase all guitar picks together.
Refer to 2nd picture in the custom engraved guitar picks page or click the link below:

My guitar picks are approximately
>1 1/16 inch or 26 mm wide
>1 1/2 inch long or 31 mm
>1/8 of an inch thick or 3 mm thick to insure durability and to allow the grooves at the top of the pick to be deeper, allowing for better grip

Some guitar picks may not be exactly those dimensions. But I do my best to make them as close to those measurements as I can. I do this by hand and I have to estimate as I sand them by hand.
Yes, I practice guitar and use them on my acoustic guitar. Wood guitar picks offer a much clearer and stronger strum. It gives a very earthy tone. You’ll hear and notice it when you try it.

Feel and sound:

For sound,
They make a great smooth sound when they hit the strings. It doesn't have that plasticky sound that a plastic pick has as it rolls off each string. Customers and friends say that they have a beautiful earthy tone.

For feel,
Smooth to the touch, great grip at the top. It's hard to see in the pictures, but there are indentations at the top on both sides for gripping. Engravings add some roughness but give more friction to make it even easier to grip.
For almost everything in my store, you can reapply a coat of mineral oil or beeswax/mineral oil mix to the wood to revive its color over time.
