I’ve seen these on here a lot. so I stole the thought and put it on a pedestal. Well, not really a pedestal. A 1/4” dowel raises it about 1/2” above the base and leans it back at 10 degrees. This was fun, but I wont do it again until I get a few small picture frame clamps.

Nice job.

I am in the process of making several of these myself and can give two tips from building 5 of these and having 3 to go. If you don’t have picture frame clamps. You can cut a couple “shim” type pieces and using double sided tape. Put them by your 45’s and use a C Clamp to bring them together. I also put a square block on the inside where the business card will sit for extra support. I also used epoxy (locktight brand 2 part) instead of glue. Really made a strong joint.

Hope this helps and great job again on this fantastic project!
