I’ve been making these card holders as wood wallets with scraps that I inevitably have laying around the shop . . .

They are Nice!
Do they slide together or are they hinged?

I have the same question in regards to the hinges…. Can we see one open and how the hinge works?

Thanks Richard

Very nice and I’d love to how they’re hinged.

Hi all. Thanks for looking and for leaving a comment. I’ll post a pic tomorrow of the hinge. It’s just a normal barrel hinge with a metal pin in it and the skins on the sides hold it in.

Really nifty. I agree with most above, how do you do this?, need more details on construction.
Thanks

Thanks again all. Sorry, I have been finishing a huge project and have been exhausted from it. I will post pics when I finally have the time and energy to touch up the photos.
I am just about to make another batch of these card holders. I will try to take some pics as I go. They are really quite simple. You just need to be specific and an understanding of working parts helps. :-)
till next time!
cheers!

these look so cool could you post some pictures of them open? How much room is there inside? Did you line them with anything?
