Someone liked the card holder I made for myself, so they asked for one. Made from one peice of cherry, with bubunga sides and accents.

Awesome, I was starting to wonder how big the thing was till I clicked on one with the card in it.

That’s really neat. Forgive me if this is a dumb question, but did you use a scroll saw?

I thought there had to be a trick because that would be HEAVY if it was full size.

Nice work and a neat idea.

I did use a scroll saw for the sides and cut the cherry center on an angle then chiesled out the space for the cards.

I like it too. I was beginning to think this was an April fools joke.

How do you produce stock that thin? Milling will forever be an uphill battle for me.

I really like the design. It is something different. Craftsmanship is great.

I made a blog post today about bubinga, and thought your project would be nice to include. So I’ve linked back to your project page here. Hope that’s okay.

I can see what you mean about the pew. When I was growing up there were benches in town that had sides made of cement and that’s what I patterned my bench after. Come to think of it, they were probably bus stop benches.
