I finally got around to making a wooden business card holder. I have seen so many different styles out there and came up with this. My wife took one look at it and stole it for herself so I will just have to make the next one even nicer for myself. You can store 26 business cards in it and it is made from cherry and bird’s eye maple with 2 coats of tung oil and 2 coats of wipe on poly.

Dominic—the lid is held close by a friction fit.

I suppose you could use rare earth magnets to keep the lid closed as well. Very small ones could be glued inside to keep it close.

Nice holder.
