These are my calendar frames that I made for our kids for Christmas. My wife had some custom calendars made up from Walgreen Drug Store with various pictures of each family. Each family will recieve their own custom calendar and frames. The frame plans came from Ty from Mesa, AZ. His web site, blog.monolocoworkshop.com provided the plans for these frames. His plans, however called for a larger calendar than what I used, so I had to adjust the measurements to fit the calendars. If you intend to build the same thing, I would highly suggest that you obtain the calendar first, then build the frame. All total, I made 8 frames. The wood I used was Maple and Cherry with about 4 coats of lacquer on them. They are assembled using mortise and tenon joinery. The last photo shows I had to finish them outside on a calm day because I don’t have a paint booth. Whenever I make a project, I put a current dated penny inset on the back side of the project to show the year it was made. Thank you Ty for the inspiration for making these frames.
