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! ;)

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