This is a variation of the Leaner, but with dowels used to extend the front edges and also supported with a dowel. In addition, the edges are purposly separated.
Construction: Apart from the vertical support and the base, the card holder was assembled dry, then CA glue applied from the back. Oak dowels were specifically selected for use as extensions for the front edges so the application of CA glue from behind would allow wicking fully to the front faces.
Wood: Both the back face as well as the two front edges(lips) are of reclaimed Hickory flooring. All dowels are Oak. And the base is Brazillian Cherry.
Finish: Lazy Laquer spray bomb.
All comments & criticisms welcome.
