I have wood fenders on my pedal bike and plan on using them on future MAB's also.

They are made by a buy named Cody in Bend, OR. Woodys Custom Cycling Fenders

I know the price is pretty steep and that your fix is just as good functionally and way cheaper but sometimes you just have to do what you feel is right.
I was just sitting in the garage looking at the bike and decided to start on the front fender tomorrow. Too bad I don't have access to an English Wheel. I could do some neat Swoopy-Curvy fenders but the flat stock serves the purpose for now. I'm anxious to get some paint on it but its just too cold right now even with a heated garage. I'll wait for a warm day and shoot it black. By that time I'll have the front one done and I'll do them both. I'll post pix of the finished project. Those woody fenders are beautiful but a little out of my price range and I'd be afraid of scratching them anyway
