instead of having my stuff all over i am going to place it all hear. hear are a couple i jest finished last night with aluminum handles. i put a turned finish on them witch makes them more pleasing to the eye then covered them with a layer of clear varnish to protect the handles from scratches hope u all like.

Those look really good! I like the finish on the aluminum handles. Are those roll pins securing the pick to the handle?
