We had friends coming over for some hand and foot New Year’s Eve, and I’ve had card holders on my list of things to do for a while now, so out to the garage shop I went. We live in Sparks, NV and it was a nippy 17 degrees in the garage so I had to do some heating before I could stand it out there. I lit off my construction Kerosene blast furnace and after about 15 minutes, it was a nice 69 degrees and I went to work.

These were made out of some Red Oak scraps I picked up at our local Home Depot. The card holders are 3.5” X 10”. I ran the pieces of red oak through my jointer then off to the table saw to make sure they were all 3.5” wide. After cutting the blanks, I set the table saw blade at a 10 degree angle, then cut the groves. After cutting the groves, I cut the 6 blocks at 10” then ran them all through my router which was set up with a round over bit. Lastly, the chore every woodworker loves the most, sanding…...

The felt feet were my wife’s idea and kept them nice and quiet. It was an easy project, it took about an hour and a half total, and they worked out just great.
