I saw some of these posted some time ago and decided to use some of my cut-offs and small thin pieces left from re-sawing for some other projects to make some business card holders. Each will hold about 15 cards and they fit nicely into a shirt pocket. Woods used were horse chestnut, nogal, oak, rosewood, cherry, bocote, purpleheart, bloodwood and zebrawood. Finished with Deft Danish oil and then buffed with the Beall buffing system.

Beautiful! I need to try this style as they look less labor intensive than the ones I made. You have some very nice scrap/cut offs!

Bill those look real close to the ones I made, I did a write up on how I made them, but there are a lot of that design floating around, all look very nice.
