A matched pair of business card holders for a matched pair of brothers.

The basic design comes from the John Wilson book titled “Making Wood Tools”.

The woods are walnut for the body and birdseye maple for the sides. The “blade” is tombstone shaped and made from 3/16” aluminum. The wedge retainer pin is 1/4” brass and the wedge is bloodwood with a 9 degree slope.

Have a great day Lumberjocks.
