Wooden Card Holders

I’m thinking a scout troop could make a bunch of these to donate to a nursing home – and score major service project points and lots of Senior’s smiles!!


  • a 2″ x 4″ board (only need 9.5″ of the board per holder – these are pine)
  • a table saw, miter saw, or if you’re pretty handy, a circular saw
  • sanding block or power sander
  • wood stain (optional)
  • polyurethane wood finish (optional)
  • felt padding (highly recommended)
