Wooden wallet as a part of wedding present, with some money in it. It’s made of walnut and letters are of ceiba playwood. Scrollsaw technic was used with 3 degree angled table. Ofcourse I made begginers mistake – I put walnut plate above playwood sacrificed plate so white letters turned narrowed than letter holes.
But nothing that can’t be fixed with little walnut sawdust mixed with some glue and little sanding later.
Glossy finish at the end. Closure with pair of magnets.

Thanks everyone for comments. It served as weding gift, infact money is what was given as a gift and wooden wallet just served as additional decoration.That’s why it was personalized with initials.It has enough space just for thin nickles Ralbuck. Top and bottom are carved with mini router just 3mm each.
