I decided to make a business card holder as a gift for my customer since their cards were all over their desk, hopefully I’ll get some more sales out of the deal! ;)

I got the inspiration from Rance's Page and added my own touches to it.

These pieces were made from scraps laying around the shop, I had I nice piece of figured hard maple that I found in my router cabinet build that I’ve been storing for months now.

Finished with Woodriver’s Tung Oil.

I like the way you made it lean, and the wood combos as well.

Very nice, I might just have to borrow this design to use in my Woods Manufacturing class ;).

Nice job on the card holder. I like the bevel you added on the base. Good choice of woods.

Thanks for the link back to my page. Glad to see the design used by others.

I like your variation Lance…..these little “filler” projects to use up the scraps are really good – helps clear the mind also. Nicely done….
