How to draw a card from the bottom of the deck

Ordinarily, drawing from the bottom of the deck is frowned upon, but lately we have been playing games that request that you do.
When you have to draw from the bottom of the deck, you have to pick up the deck each time, get all except for the card that you need to draw, then you dent it with your fingernails trying to pick it up.

I introduce to you The Card Deck Holder That Helps You Draw From the Bottom!

This was designed for 2 ½ x 3 ½ cards. My test was cut from 3mm mdf. I was hoping that the slot would be a bit looser so that it would come apart easily, but that is not the case - I think it is permanently pressure fit together. The backstop wobbles, but that helps the deck of cards sit at an angle.
Each piece has a separate color outline so that you can use up scrap if you like.
I edited my design in the GF UI, then exported this file. If you have problems with it, let me know.
Enjoy!

Dammit. And here I spent all that time learning the bottom-deal and various other card manipulations and you go and make it all easy and stuff. :rofl:

Nice build. :slight_smile:

Clever design. I have so much trouble picking up thin flat things nowadays.
