I made my Sister in law a business card holder out of the classic picnic table a while back http://lumberjocks.com/projects/92556 and a friend of hers was really impressed with it. Her friends birthday came up and my SIL wanted one made for her. The only thing was she said she needed it tomorrow and it was already 5:00! I told her I could get it done and this is what I came up with. There is no stain or poly as requested. Lettering with a dremel router. Made a simple box and attached underneath to hold the cards. Simple project but came out nice. SIL was happy.

Sounds like you need a stash of these for “emergencies”!

Thanks for the comments all. Candy you may be right. So far I’ve made them as salt and pepper holders, two styles of business card holders and even one for my niece with the fox and hound on it for her small stuffed animals to be displayed. These tables can be modified for so many uses. Thanks all for looking.

I love it. What a great idea and it looks so nice. How did you do the lettering?

Sounds like the start of a “cottage business” to me :)

Thanks for the comments everyone. Vicki, I use a dremel with an attachment on the end, works like a small router. I use a V bit for lettering. For the style I use paint for the font and size then print and use carbon paper to transfer where to cut. Lee, I believe I need to make a form for building these, seems they have become popular. Thanks everyone for looking!

This is really eye catching. I’d love to know how you made it and what you made it out of. Any details would be really appreciated. Great job!
