Wanted to make a business card holder as a thank you gift so searched LJ projects and Google. Ran across this post ( and thought I would try a version of it. I had some problems with glue up so went to the simpler design for the gift (last two pictures). I returned to the angled holder, figured out the glue up, and I think I will keep this one for myself! Used walnut and finished with GF High Performance.

Thank you for some new ideas on card holders. I had used door trim before and made and sold them when I was a business. Mine looked like a box, and I use them in my new business. These give me some ideas with the small pieces I bought last year. Please check my site for any ideas and projects also.

Nice designs, very refined and well presented BB.

I’ve made a few and much prefer the simpler design (as with your last photos). Not so much for the form, but oh so much easier to make 8^)

Thanks everyone! This was actually started as a gift for a doctor who is helping me with the treatment for my DVT. Gave the simpler one to him as I was still trouble shooting the glue up of the “angled” one.

Have your say...
