I am always bending and crushing my business cards while they are in my pocket. so I made something that will hold them and keep them safe while I work...
It works great and looks classy when I hand them out.

Step 1: gather your stuff

******SAFETY FIRST******
ALWAYS USE PROPER SAFETY GEAR WHEN WORKING WITH POWER TOOLS!
FOLLOW ALL SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS FOR YOUR OWN TOOLS
COMMON SENSE IS THE MOST IMPORTANT!

For this project I used the following tools;
Tablesaw
Planer
Scrollsaw
Router mounted in a table (with a small round over bit)
Sander
Drill press
small clamps, Vice
Wood-glue
sandpaper
scrap wood

These are made from Blood wood, Cherry,  Ash and Box Elder.

Hey yo aye can I put $$$$$ in it<br>
Can I put money in it<br>
Great job. I'm going to make me some.You say the middle piece is 3/16 - 1/4 thick. From the picture it looks like the 2 outer pieces are thinner. What's the thinckness of the outer pieces?
Im pretty sure they are all around 1/4&quot; thick with the middle one being a little bit thicker. <br>
Hey where can I get the box elder wood
Love this and plan on making this and I love the Box Elder wood but i have no idea where to get it. where did you get yours and how much was it thanks.
Pretty funny nice job dude I'm a beginner whit arduino steel got to learn
WELL WHERE DO I START! <br> <br>To be honest it&rsquo;s so nice I could not find a fault with it. <br>The boys will love a hand out like this one; I may have to make several for the board room. <br> <br>See, self restraint, something you should try............ <br>
Thanks. <br>Though, their are plenty of faults with them, but it is an original idea and ALL original pics.
Awesome Instructable... Stylish, Practical, Simple, yet elegant. Definately agree that natural wood and finishing is the way to go. Have you done one with clasp/lid or cap? Sometimes cards jumble around and spill out if tossed around.
No, I haven't done one with a clasp. I will say that in the very beginning, that was the direction I was going while I thought about the design. I decided to keep it simple. In all honesty, they rarely come out of the box, I keep it stocked... Thank you for the compliments! They are always appreciated!
Nice project and congratulations on the win! Have a super day! <br>sunshiine
Loved your ible, had to make one for myself. <br> <br>Used oak on the outside and plywood on the middle section to have a nice striped pattern. Had to add my own little flair to it as well. <br> <br>Thanks for the idea!!
