So, I’ve had these finished for a while but just never got around to posting them. They are business card holders based off a design from a magazine article (in Wood Magazine I think). I changed the dimensions a little so they could also fit wallet sized photos as well. I also changed the construction a little to get the color contrast I wanted. The one in the fifth pic was the first one I made. A prototype if you will. It’s smaller than the rest cause I followed the plans exactly on this to get the build down first and then made my changes for the others. And when I completed these, I didn’t have a bandsaw, so I resawed everything on my table saw. Also paid extra attention while cutting the many small pieces on my table saw. Everything turned out ok for the most part.
Pic 1: All four together
Pic 2: Koa and Curly Maple accents. I actually carry wallet pics of my daughter in this one.
Pic 3: Curly Maple and Paduak accents.
Pic 4: Curly Maple with Koa accents. An inversion to Pic 2.
Pic 5: This is all Cherry. My prototype.
Pic 6: This is the Koa one opened to display a business card.
All were finished with some Shellac and then Deft Spray on Lacquer. They measure about 4.25” L x 3” W x .375” T except for the Cherry one which is slightly smaller. All will fit easily in a shirt pocket. All questions or comments are welcomed. Thanks for looking!
