I made these with my left over maple and walnut from the cutting boards I made for my kids.

I like the shape, particularly with the rubber feet on them as it lifts them and gives more depth to the stand and creates a shadow underneath.

Sanded to 240 grit and finished with Livos transparent (I love that finish!!!).

Thanks, I realized afterwards they are great for holding business cards as well.

That specific design (not YOUR exact dimensions, but the “holder”) is a dream for me. You’re right…business cards, cellphones, clipboard, note board, mirrors, calculator….the list goes on and on. I did a run of about 100 of them 3 years ago for a client who owned 7 mall kiosk cell phone repair locations. At first that’s all he wanted was a “cool” business card display to go with the new kiosk(s) I did. Two days later he called and said he sold it as a cell phone dock accidentally while one of his employees played with it because they ran out of business cards. He put his phone in it and within 30 minutes it sold. So 4 days later he had his order and I still continue to do them today for him and others.

I really love the walnut contrast. As well as your attention to detail with adding the feet because it creates a shadow. It adds the illusion of depth and sturdiness to a simply project.

I’m curious as to how you cut the slot.

I cut the slot with a dado blade on the table saw, cut the shape afterwards on the bandsaw.
