I'm going to try and whittle some picks out of cast acrylic. Right now I'm looking at ordering sheets of it from K-mac Plastics, and am wondering if there is a better place to check out. Any suggestions?

I was looking at this place: http://www.amazonsupply.com/ myself before I salvaged some and made a handful of picks.

Acrylic has a tone similar to polycarbonate, but its relatively brittle and fragile compared to the engineering grade plastics most picks are made of so it needs some care in the making.

I thought Gravity made their picks from cast acrylic. I'm looking for whatever they use - not that I think I will necessarily be able to create something comparable, I just want a new project for the upcoming winter and think it would be fun to try.
