Business Card Holder

I searched for business card holders on LJ and came across a couple of designs that looked pretty cool so I thought I would give it a shot. This is made from Peruvian Walnut and White Ash and was simply glued together and finished with 4 to 5 coats of General Finishes High Performance Satin Polyacrylic. This will probably hold about 25 to 45 cards depending on the stock thickness. My business cards are pretty thick and I was able to get 30 comfortably in there.

Thanks! It’s a little decoISH but pretty cool. I kinda just had fun with it, my wife helped me glue it together in a way that she thought looked cool! I plan on making a few more for fun and will prolly give them to my bosses! :)

That came out great ! Nice color contrast between that sweet piece of Ash and the Peruvian Walnut : )
Really nice miters and end cuts. What blade did you use ?

You inspired me to make one for a friend that just got a promotion. I just made one out of Lacewood and Padauk.

I’m also a big supporter of the Freud blades, but those are great cuts from the Diablo line !
Thanks for the info : )

Dusty,
Yes, they are pretty good blades and I only pay like $35 for them on Amazon. I think my miter gauge also helps a lot with the accuracy. I use the Incra Miter 1000HD, it’s a pretty awesome gauge.

Dusty,
One more thing… I also use the Freud Blades on my miter saw which i generally use for quick cuts and stuff like crown molding, etc.. Those blades work really well for the miter saw too!

I also have two different Incra miter gauges…one I bought, the more expensive one (like yours) came free for buying an old Craftsman tablesaw for $20.00 !!
Sometimes I feel bad for folks that don’t know what they’re selling…..
....but I get over it : )
Thanks for going out of your way to provide those links for me / us.

Yeah! That Incra miter HD has been a real lifesaver and makes cuts so much easier to do with much less setup time. I can’t believe you got that for free, that’s pretty awesome! I never get lucky like that!
