  • Reading forums WAY to late at night....

    Last night i read a thread about vista business cards. Carter mentioned to take the business cards and glue them to 1/4 piece of plywood. Then make a small puzzle out of it. Super idea.

    The next even more interesting idea is to have you business cards made out of very thin wood stock. So you have WOOD on WOOD. Maple would be good if you want the QR burned in on it.

    Now comes the question. Where would you get thin wooden business card made inexpensively?

    With a good burning tool, you might be able to make them by hand with 1/8" BBply..For those special customers...
    I'm not sure about burning the QRC by hand though. You'd have to be sure to get it perfect. probably not impossible, but difficult.

      Easy to find

      These have been around for years. Just Google it. This place lists 29 different sources:

      29 Creative and Durable Wooden Business Cards

      Now, inexpensive - that's another question!

      Full disclosure - I have no connection with any of these companies. Haven't used them and don't know them. But they are obviously available.

          Why no just glue regular business cards to the wood? Then they would be in their original design and color.

            I still might like the challenge, using Carter's suggestion, but burning an operational QRC on the back...
            Just to see if I could do it...

                I often resize just to fit the size of the wood I have on hand. I agree this is a no win situation because of the various software, hardware differences plus the skill level of us, the end users. Even providing the patterns in a digitized format will no fix this because of the reasons I already mentioned....

                John your original post is a valid question. It is a simple thing to put in the original scale assuming that it was on the original drawing. As a minimum the size of the material required can be stated, although that has been a confusion for folks that have built the clock projects. I field a lot of...

                Maybe nothing has changed ? But is there anything that can be done to make it easier. The very large projects are difficult to copy over several pages and put together properly. I believe in making improvements and not preserving the status quo.

                I enjoy the challenge of cutting a project...

                This is not a problem with the magazine for my issue.. It is a problem with the book having resized the drawings without giving the actual size.

                I do again apologize for my post.. I cannot use the right words to explain it.. so maybe someone should just remove the post....

                Reading these replies, I am still trying to figure out what the problem really is. I haven't noticed changes in how they publish recently and I don't think I ever had trouble making copies of of the patterns I want to cut.

                How did you copy the patterns 10 years ago? What has changed?...
