DIY Dry Erase Board Calendar
How to Make a Calendar Board and Pen Rack
Note the measurements of this object's two pieces of wood, consisting of:
- an upright piece; and
- a base block. (Click on images to enlarge.)
Mark out the pieces accurately according to the above measurements.Where you have a piece like the upright of the calendar-board to mark out, with opposite sides alike, it is best to draw a center-line first, then lay off the measurements each side of this line, and connect the points with straight lines. Alternately, lay off the measurements on one side of the center-line, draw the lines connecting the points, make a careful tracing of the outline, reverse the tracing, and trace it off upon the opposite side of the center-line.
In sawing out the pieces, cut a trifle outside of the outline, then finish up to the line with a plane.The round corners of the upright piece of the calendar-board can either be cut with a chisel or be filed round. The bevel on the top edge of the base block can be made with a plane or chisel.
Center the upright piece on the base block, and fasten with brads driven through the base block.
Stain the wood and wax it before the pad and the hooks are attached.
Make the calendar pad about 2 inches (5.1 cm) wide and 3 1/2 inches (5.1 cm) long.This used to be a standard size that can be purchased at stationery stores when this article was written initially. If you don't find such a calendar easily, you can print a calendar pad of your own using the computer to create one. The brass screw-hooks which screw into the front edge of the base block, to form the pen-rack, should be inch (1.9 cm) long.
Add a strip of light-weight felt, broadcloth, or other heavy cloth, glued to the bottom of the base.This will prevent the base from scratching surfaces it sits on, and will give the gift a finished, professional feel.
