Okay, so here’s a “how’s that made?” comment. This looks like it might be one a few that were made? Pretty nice!

Thank you everybody for your nice words. Very encouraging. As for how I made it, Mot, I used my router with an edge guide and stop blocks to cut the card slot, then my table saw with a simple jig to pruduce the sharp angles. Not rocket surgery, but I am happy with it. I have made others like it using a dado with the card slot going all the way through. That was way easier and still came out good.

Almost make we wish that I worked at the office again. Like I said almost.

A great job. Great design

Unique shape and a wonderful piece of Zebrawood to highlight it : )
How thick was the Zwood ?
thanks
