Business in the front

Been playing around with business card holder designs. Different shapes and sizes. I’ve done all of these in both vertical and horizontal cards, in a bunch of different woods, now I’m working on a couple unusual shapes. As long as you keep the hole for the cards and standoffs the same, you can get some really interesting designs /shapes for the bases.

That is such a clever idea and I especially like your choice of woods. I am sure they will be a big hit. :heart_eyes:

Those are very nice. I’ve been playing with business card holders lately too, so these are inspiring me to try something different than what I’ve been doing.

Those are great. Where do you get your standoffs?? I can;t seem to find a good source. They seem so expensive for what they are.

I got a full 4 ft x 8 ft sheet from my local supplier in both 1/8” and 1/4”. :grin:

Do you have a photo of the bottom of these? I would love to know how you attached it.

I don’t, but you wouldn’t see anything anyway, it’s covered in felt for protection. Both the surface you put it on and my secrets. Bwahahaha

Sorry, got a little carried away. :sunglasses:

They are just glued in place for this project. The felt was added after the second or third one. I realized I didn’t like the look of everything on the bottom showing, whatever people were going to put them on might need a little protection, and I think it adds to the higher class feel these project with the nicer wood and the “glass” tops.

Very cool Curt! Nice design work man.
Thanks for the stand off link. That is some cool acrylic, thank you for the pieces you gave me! I still have to explore that stuff edge lit…
If you have any left when you clear out, I will buy it from you ( and some more of that killer bacon you make) and drive down there again to shake your hand once more.

Is it just called “glass like acrylic”?

BTW, awesome! I actually ordered some of these standoffs on Friday.

Maybe that should be my next endeavor. Get a commercial kitchen and make bacon. :rofl::rofl::rofl:

Most places have it as an acrylic color. ‘Glass green’

Absolutely LOVE these! Truly inspiring! (Read: poachable) I really dig the creative use of the standoffs. There is soooo much you can do with this basic concept. Thank you for sharing! My mind is racing! (In a glorious way.)

Put me on that list :heart_eyes:
