I just finished these three business card holders that are made from walnut and white oak. These can hold about 50 business cards, this based on mine which are pretty thick. I think they came out pretty good, I like the angle which gives is that lean back look! It’s like your business cards be chillin! :)~

These are beautiful… Oak and walnut look so nice together.

Are these your own original design?

If they are, any chance of getting more details?

If they not your design, where can I get the plans?

Yes, in case you can’t tell, I like them (a lot!)

Hey Herb, I saw the design on LJ about two years ago and just made it my own. I have no plans, I just do whatever looks good. I’m glad you like them, let me know if you have questions or want more info.

Is the holder inset into the base? Or is that corner cut on a bevel? How is the holder attached to the base?

Sorry to flood you with questions but I’m really interested in these…

Hey Herb, the card holder portion is not inset into the base, it’s simply glued on with Epoxy. I’m one of these guys who doesn’t like using screws with my projects (unless i really have too) so I did consider using a dowel but the original one that i made over two years ago is holding strong and I used Epoxy back then so I think it will be OK. I cut the bottom to be at a 6 or 7 degree angle. For projects where it has been hard to clamp or where there is only a small surface area to hold a bond, I have also used this:
