well made and just what I needed for my cards.

Been looking for something to press my cards with that wasn't a large stack of books. This does the job quite well!

This is a unique product. The shipping was fast, thorough and well-packed. I like it for the following reasons: - made of oak - sanded smooth - aromatic divider boards - multiple decks can be loaded - clever screw press design There are some issues with the design, however: - the load at one end (nearest the handle) is borne entirely by three small screws. The plate and screws should be on the *inside* of the box, not the outside. - The semicircular dividers should have a much, much smaller 'half moon' slice taken out of them - no more than 1/2" radius - otherwise there is a very good chance of marking the cards. - the screw design brings a lot of pressure to bear, potentially, on the joints of the box. I suggest replacing the mitre joint with a dovetail to increase the surface area available for gluing. Much stronger!

Excellent craftsmanship! This traveled all across the country and arrived in perfect condition! Super fast shipping and great quality! Thank you soo much!
