Tinkering around in the shop a while back I decided to try my hand at making a business card holder. Using a plan out of a popular woodworking magazine I decided to go with some oak and padauk I had lying around the shop. This was one of my first projects working with small detailed pieces. I can tell you I struggled a bit with a couple of the steps. However, it was extremely satisfying once it started looking like a card holder. :)
I used the bandsaw and tablesaw for most of the piece milling. I used my router to round over the edges and the drill press for the hole and pins. This turned out to be a nice project to use a variety of tools in my shop. I used good ‘ole tung oil to pop the oak. I turned alright. I hope to make a few more of these for Christmas as gifts for some of my colleagues.
