I had some scraps of wood left over and was trying to figure out what do make with them.
The wife said she was going to go buy some business card holders for her cards at the craft shows we go to.
I made a few and they worked great…one more thing in the repertoire.
We sold some so I made more. Then we realized a smartphone would sit in them as well.
No change in design or construction, just an added application.
I cut each piece to 3 1/2 inches, then bandsaw at a freehand angle into two pieces.
The grooves are cut to 3/4 inch on a RAS that’s semi-permanently set up with a 3/4 in dado blade.
Then I sand them to 220 on a disk/belt sander trying to vary the shape of each one just a little.
Finish is 2# shellac rubbed off while wet, and some are the polished with the Beall system.
I’ve run out of scraps, so now they are a production item.
