This beautiful DIY perpetual calendar will sit on your desk and give you something meaningful to do once a month, every month, in an endless cycle of perpetuity.
Begin this project by cutting your base to length, then using the router to profile the edges.
Cut a slot in the board to hold the glass.
You can buy a picture frame at the dollar store, remove the glass, and use it for this project.
The numbers are printed on a vinyl sticker, which you can have done at a sign shop if you don’t have a vinyl cutter.
Next, cut your slider to size. Trace the center cutout, and drill starter holes at the corners.
Use a jigsaw to cut out the center out of your board. Sand the inside edges by hand.
Use wood glue to attach the cleat to the back of the slider. Then sand all outside edges.
Apply lacquer to the boards before applying the vinyl lettering.
Enjoy your finished project!
