Business Card Holders

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.

Great looking card holders. These should be popular.

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.
