these are a couple of card holders based on a design by my good friend Jim McCord of DynamiteBoxes and taught to me by my friend and mentor, fellow LJ Dave Clark, both of whom I will be forever grateful for their friendship and guidance.
The first card holder is made of Curly Koa with ebony and the second is box elder burl with Macassar ebony

There is a lot more skill and effort in those than one would imagine! Yours are beautiful.

Very inventive design! I like how you can fold it up to keep the cards inside, and then open it to display them.

Outstanding design and execution. I would love to see some design drawings or even better a video showing the creative process. I hope you will consider creating one.
