I’ve been intrigued about a card holder for multiple cards for a while. I designed this one to satisfy that curiosity.
The bulk of the material is Red Oak from The Rappahannock River crib dam that had been under water for 150 years. When cut, it looks stark grey. That is contrasted with the splines from the same species that spent its life above the water line. Lastly, the peak is capped with a cube of Bloodwood.
No stains or dyes used. Spray Laquer finish.
1 – Finished
2 – With cards installed
3 – And not to mention, the aerial photography
Additional information about that Dam wood can be found HERE or by searching “rappahannock river crib dam”.
I have other card holder designs on the horizon so stay tuned…
All comments & criticisms welcome.
