Calendar Frame

Daughter makes a special calendar for us each year… needed a frame to hang them on. Also, we have our annual Mason Dixon Woodworkers picnic coming up on Sunday… needed something for show and tell. This calendar is a standard 12 X 24; another standard is 11 X 17. Frame size will handle them all.

Basic idea was a frame in Wood Magazine January 2008.

I was invited to use the shop of one of our woodworking buddies. That was enjoyable. He has much bigger tools!

Don’t know the exact wood… from Africa or So America. Burns easily like a cherry, grain and workability of mahogany, and similar coloration of walnut. Has some nice figure.

Lap joints in frame, grove and rabbits in pencil box.

Two-three coats of General Finishes Gel Topcoat. I’m basically a pure tung oil fella, and this was my first time using the varnish. It is fine…

I think that either Sapele of Sipo. I’ll let you know come Sunday.

Great frame.

You know Al that if your saw is set up right then it won’t burn.

So was it Pat’s new sawstop or your saw?

I can’t blame Pat as I might want to use his shop and SawStop again but I had similar results using his golden Powermatic monster. It couldn’t be my router as it would never leave burn marks…

Do you think, operator error? No, never me… like Ha, and double Ha.

But did I mention… this wood sanded and scraped easily, so removing superficial burn was not much of a problem… especially after learning how to sharpen a scraper in one of our workshops.
