This is a jeffswildwood classic. Way back in 2002 my Son began to play magic and accumulated several card. He asked Dad if I could make something to keep them in. This is what I came up with. I measured for the card slots and allowed room for felt to protect the cards. Tricky. I cut dados with a router for this. For the lid I had him sacrifice six cards that I glued down then Polyurethaned over. The wood is superboard from a local company here called woodtech. Sadly, no longer in business. Stained with special walnut and water based polyurethane. Assembled with nails, yea. Despite years of use and abuse it’s still holding up strong. It’s stood the test of time.
