A very simple card holder for our Catan obsession. We are constantly fighting card piles that are messy and driving my linear minded wife crazy.


I created the box shape with http://boxmaker.rahulbotics.com, then tore it apart to make the design you see here. I added the dividers between the cards and added some vector art to the slots I borrowed from the web.

Design is for 4mm plywood. I used birch plywood with hardwood veneer from a big box home improvement store. $38 for 4 x 8' sheet. I can get two of these holders from a 12x24" pc. Call it $2.38 cents for two holders.

I did vector cuts at 100% power and 15% speed with a 50W ULS on honeycomb bed. took two passes to cut through. I cut twice to reduce charring and marking on the really light colour or the wood.

Etched was done at 85% power and 50% speed with resolution cranked right up to 1000PPI to make it as crisp as possible.

There is no glue used in the design except for the two end caps. I used Weldbond for this and 10 minutes later we were is business.

Feel free to modify or add/change vector graphics as your heart desires.

Wish there was one to print. I don't have access to burn one of these out.

Just what I needed. Now my friends won't throw my cards all over the place.
