Business card and Brochure Holder

Well this all started out as a Blackberry holder for my desk, after making the larger fixture I thought it was a bit too big for a phone so now it is a brochure holder lol. I had some more scrap left from the original scrap I had started with (last picture) so I decided to make a business card holder to match. It is a bit hard to notice from the pictures but all the pieces are cut at an 18 degree angle to keep it from just being a square box. The three woods selected are walnut, cherry and ash. I cut out the shapes, layed them out and glued them togther… true to the name of the challenge, the only thing new is the glue!

I was thinking of making a business card holder too. For my boss. Maybe score a few extra points. Nice job.

I tried the same thing recently. I haven’t burned it yet, but that doesn’t mean I won’t. Yours looks great!

I make these every couple of weeks at my job out of acrylic, but these here made from wood look so much better! ;)

Fantastic scrap project. Nice useful item every woodworker should have on their desk.

Keep it up.

Good luck in the contest.

Nice and good for business. Nice to be able to tell a client that you built everything yourself right down to the card holder.
