The second and final part of the series focuses on the calendar frame details. We start by creating the front loading slots, then move on to creating the curve in the top rail, and finally we create the small pencil groove in the bottom rail. The frame is then glued up, the back panel is cut and installed and the roundover profile is routed on the perimeter.

The finish for the maple frame is Sherwin Williams CAB Acrylic Lacquer (we’ll discuss the role of flatteners) and the finish for the white oak frame is Watco Teak Oil.

The calendar frame is made to fit calendars that are roughly 13 1/2” x 24” when opened.

Marc: First let me congratulate you and your wife on you new addition to the family. I am sure you will be busy coming up with new projects for your son’s room. I started watching your end grain cutting board video and it inspired me to make one. All the family members that saw it were amazed by the way the CBturned out. I have since made many variation’s that have been either given away or sold. I will be making my wife a calendar holder as soon as my arm cast comes off and given the okay to go back in the shop.
