This is a couple of business card holder I made for a locale wood supplier I bartered with in exchange for some wood. The laser engraving was done by Woodcraft in Orlando, Florida. After I took this picture I waxed it with Renaissances wax, it took out the residue from the engraving. We’ve (my hubby & I) have over 30 of these made. We have some made from Bloodwood, Bubinga, Lacewood, Ebony, Wenge, Zebrawood, Cocobolo, Purpleheart, Walnut, Cherry and the in the picture is made of Canarywood. There in the finish stage now, I’ll post them when there done.

These are very nice. I really like the contrasting wood on the ends and the simple lines. Question – what is the technique used to create the hinges?

very nice! id love to see more pictures. the hinges look like rounded box joints to me. do you drill and insert a rod to hold them together?

We did use plans for making them. To make the hinges we used the Incra system with hinge crafter. There is a 1/8” brass rod that is inserted and then the caps on the ends are glued in place.
Making them is pretty straight forward and easy….finishing them is a whole different story. We have made about 100 all together of them in just about every exotic wood that you can get from your local lumber supplier.
