My mom asked me to make a recipe index card holder for her to be able to give it to the person who was her 500th like on Facebook. So this walnut car holder with maple splines is what I came up with.

Looks really good Laney. Nice design, wood combos and splines. How are ya findin time to build anything while your in the middle of your shop re-do?? It’s good that you are still able to whip some projects together. Good deal.

Very classy. Hard to go wrong with that wood combo. I like how you did the base.

Roger, I am essentially working out of boxes..lol I have a few machines set up temporarily while I am reorganizing because I still have orders to fill and projects to do while at the same time getting the shop building set up…its a juggling act, but it will all be back to normal soon..

And thank you all for the kind words, I am glad you like the project!
