Use your scroll saw skills and a small piece of wood to craft this attractive and unique holder for business cards or other small items you want to keep handy.
By Dave Van Ess
My passion is woodworking! I would do a lot more of it if it wasn’t for that big drain on my time known as “The Day Job.”
This particular project is one I especially like because it can be completed in a single afternoon. It is a business card holder made from a single piece of wood. It is a good project for beginners as the only power tool it requires is a scroll saw. It requires some skill with the saw but not great skill. It also is a nice project for the more experienced woodworker, as it lends itself to any number of design variations and can be built with small scraps of exotic woods.
This card holder is made from a piece of wood, 51/2" by 31/2", 1/2"thick. This is small enough that you can splurge and use some really nice wood. If you lack access to a planer, find a local wood monger that sells 1/2" stock. Oak is a good choice. Copy the pattern on the next page and attach it to the wood. I like to use spray mount. If you start with a piece of wood that is 24" long, there is enough material to make four card holders.
