The calendar frame is a project that highlights the joys of simple joinery. The frame pieces are held together with half-lap joints which are as strong as they are basic. The frame is designed to allow calendar loading from the front unlike traditional frames that need to be removed from the wall every month.

The first part of this series covers the wood selection, milling, cutting half-laps, layout and cutting various rabbets. For the sake of simplicity, all of the joinery is made at the router table with a single router bit.

Materials Used
Lumber supplied by Muterspaw Lumber
Rubber Sanding Pads
Lee Valley Drawing Bows
Up-Cut Spiral Bit
Round Nose Bit
