Wooden Playing Card Holder

Introduction: Wooden Playing Card Holder

Upon my playing card's box falling apart I needed someway to store them (otherr than a rubber band). So with some 1/4 inch plywood I made a new wooden box to store my cards.


1/4 inch plywood (I used finished plywood)
Wood Glue
Saw( I Used a jigsaw)

Step 1: Cut the Wood

First you need to cut the wood. Since my cards were 2 1/2" by 3 1/2" and  3/4 inches thick. I cut the two front and back pieces 3"x 3 3/4". I then cut the two side pieces 3/4" x 3 3/4". Finally I cut the bottom, 3/4"x 2 1/2".

What to Cut
2- (3"x 3 3/4")
2- (3/4" x 3 3/4")
1- (3/4"x 2 1/2") 

Step 2: Glue It Together

Using the wood glue attach the side and bottom pieces to the bottom. Let that sit for a few hours. Then glue the top on.

Step 3: Completion

When the glue tried I made sure the cards fit. They fit well however  a improvement may need to be made to make sure the cards don't slide out.
