A set of 20 card holders made per request for a friend out of walnut.

designed to have holding power up to 8.5”x11” card stock without looking bulky and appear to float on the surface of the table.

Finished with shellac with a rubbed wax top coat.

You’ve built some very nice floaters there. I think I might ‘borrow’ that floating aspect if you don’t mind.

very nice, simple but beautiful, the shape and the wood.

Understated elegance!

I’ve been looking for a business card holder design, and I may have to borrow some of these ideas!
