This was the toughest project I’ve ever had. Actually my daughter was walking around near my wood spot and saw a small chunk of log and said “daddy, lets make something with this”. I sawed it in half and then made the slots for the business cards. I followed the grain on the right one, and followed the natural split on the left one. Debarked them, sanded them, and then sprayed them with 3 coats of lacquer.

Now thats the way to get the kids involved. Great project. Now you need to get her some of her own cards.
Nice job Chuck.

Thanks guys. I had fun with her in the shop. She doesn’t get to play with tools yet, but she’ll sand the crap out of some stuff (in all directions, lol). This summer both daughters and me will build some birdhouses.

You encourage those future wood workers every chance you get. They could teach us a lot. Takes a special eye to see the future in a piece of old ratty wood. Great projects. Keep them coming. Thanks for sharing.
