This is an oak burl business card holder I made for my son. It is finished with walnut colored danish oil then a wipe on poly.

Very cool business card holder. I would not want to cover up the beautiful wood with my cards though. But thats just me. Great job.

Great idea. Now I know what I can do with all of these little Mesquite burls I have laying around, ‘cause I ain’t no turner!

This is a very nice project. This is, I am sure, a real attention grabber for visitors to your son’s office.

This is a really nice post.

Cool, I did something similar with a section of root wrapped around a rock, I’ll have to get some pics of that loaded… Thanks for sharing..

Nice looking business card holder. That is definitely different than the usual one you see. A unique piece for someone to admire for a long time.
