I decided to make a business card holder as a gift for my customers since their cards where all over their desk, hopefully I’ll get some more sales out of the deal! ;)

I got the inspiration from Rance's Page and added my own touches to it.

These pieces were made from scraps laying around the shop, I had I nice piece of figured hard maple that I found in my router cabinet build that I’ve been storing for months now.

Everything about it is way kool, Lance. I really like the angle, the wood combos, and, well, everything, like I said.

I really like the design, clean simple and functional, you did a nice job on these. Think I’m going to borrow your design if thats ok.

Very cool idea. I like the 15 degree twist you put on the piece. It adds a modern, almost architechual touch.

Nice job on the card holder. I like the bevel you added on the base.

Thanks for the link back to my page. I actually came up with this design on my own. Very possible others have done the same thing though. Glad to see it used by others.
