My daughter received a “prized” Hannah Montana calendar for Christmas and needed more than just a nail in a wall to hang it in her room.

My wife has a Lang calendar holder that this is based on.

This is made from Quarter sawn sycamore, however, I turned the two sidepieces 90 degrees, so they’re really flatsawn in this configuration. That and a couple other flaws that I see but no one else does. I’m proud that there is no metal in this, just wood, glue and 2 mini-buscuits. The bottom crosspiece is rabbited. The backing is HDF.

Here’s the Sketchup Model.

Great looking piece. As for Hanna Montana, I’m ready for her to grow out of here series :-)). My granddaughter has her show on constantly when she is here.

Nice. The Sycamore we have here is very unstable (very beautiful) and I can only use it with a good sub straight. Nice work
