I’m always looking for ways to use cutoffs to keep them out of the burn pile. I saw some of these so thought I would give them a try. Not real hard to make but these still need a little work. These are shaped from one of my Dunlop picks.

After I cut them out on my bandsaw I use a Dremel to get them thinner then use professional grade emery boards to sand. I get the from supply stores for beauty shops and barbers around here we have Sally’s Beauty Supply. The boards there are much cheaper but the same quality as a hobby shop or woodworking supply. These work well since they are flexible. They come in grits all the way to 12,000.
