I made this quick business card holder for my wife so the cards aren’t just floating around in her purse. Roughly based on card holders by ghazard and junji, this one is made of walnut and curly maple with a toothpick as the hinge-pin. The “lid” stays shut simply by friction. Finished with salad bowl finish as that’s what I had on hand at the time.
