Very nice card holder. I like the way you used the strip of maple across the top of the back – gives the box a balanced look. Nice choice of woods, they complement each other very well.

Very nice, the contrasts in the wood really set it off.

Thanks Jim. It is actually full maple for the back with an angled piece of mahogany glued inside. Thanks again for the compliment.

It is very nice, I’d love to have it on my desk. Are the sides and front 1/4” as well?

No, the sides are 3/8” thick with a 1/4” finger joint. I prefer a 3:2 ratio for thickness of sides to finger joints, it seems to be the most pleasing to my eye. Thank you for the comment.
