Here are a couple of business card holders- I made five but two of them found homes before I had the where-with-all to take pics. The striped one is zebrawood on one side and walnut on the other, sandwiched between maple. Dark one is walnut both sides with maple in the middle and the final lighter colored one is chinquapin with rosewood in the middle. Finished with Danish Oil, wipe-on poly and then wax. These are a great simple project- Blackie has a nice set of instructions in the link below. I made mine from parts a bit thinner than Blackie’s…the sides on one given away to my instructor at last day of class were about 1/8” and the middle was about 3/16” ... I believe Blackie’s instructions call for 1/4” thick pieces. Whatever size you make them- people seem to love them. They were a great hit at my last day of class.
