Introduction: Wooden Money Clip

I've been carrying a wooden money clip for about 20 years or so. It's nice to not have to lug a wallet along for everything. You can get an ID, credit card and some bills in there with no trouble, and it fits in your front pocket where it is much harder to get picked!

This one is out of maple and total time was under 2 hours. Most of that was changing out a new belt on my large sander! I love upcycling projects! I think this would also do very well at craft shows!

I just made this, I don't have a drill press, bandsaw or sander so used, a manual drill, coping saw, chisel and sand paper. it looks a lot rougher than yours, but it does the job :). thanks for the great ible.

That's too cool! Do you have a picture? I'd love to see it.. Or share it here:

it's a bit worn and discolored from bein in my pocket, I only had linseed oil and no varnish so I'm going to re sand it and varnish when I cover a chance.

I made one of these yesterday, it's as easy to do as it looks. Well, I struggled with my band saw cutting the inside out, but got it eventually. Going to try to make some more and sell them in the family shop!

That is awesome! Do you have a picture? I'd love to see it.

Made this after collecting on my first large woodworking contract. The saying is inspired by how hard I had to fight to get paid... I have to figure out how to make the slot in the front thinner. I would like it to hold one or two bills just as well as multiples. I left the kerf marks hoping it will add some grip. Nice project Peter, i have so many scraps around the shop, i think i will make a bunch of these. Keep up the good work, love your Youtube channel!

This is so cool. I tried to make one of these a while ago and it didn't turn out quite the same. Great job though.

this was pretty fun to make because it only too a jig saw,a sanding drum and then some hand sanding! i made mine from some scrap which i saved from being burned, thanks for the project idea!
