I’ve seen a lot of different styles of business card cases on LJ’s. I’ve seen something similar to this type here as well. Here is my version. I’ve got 2 more glues up and about half completed.

I figured since most of my projects have been some type of tool restores lately, I’d show once in a while I do some woodworking projects as well.

Wood is scrap pieces of cherry, white oak and ash.

Finish is one coat of Dark Danish oil and then BLO.

Nice and very unique. Very creative. I have added you to the “more than a pretty face” category. ;=)

Does the lidt stay closed?

Very nice Don. You are a woodworker!!! How many cards do they hold?

Mads, I’ve been using one without that I made years ago. I think the lid will stay closed in my coat pocket.

Andy, I’m not sure exactly how many. I’m letting the BLO dry. My guess would be between 10-15.

Very nioce and easy to make. The ones I just posted hold less cards and I really like the lid touch.

Thanks for posting.
