Calendar Stand That Caused Blisters On My Blisters
I have been wanting to make a yearly hanging calendar but needed a stand to hang one from. So I though just how hard can it be to make one. Well let me tell you, when you have NO tools or woodcrafting skills it can be pretty hard. I have blisters on top of my blisters and bruised hands...LOL... Was it worth the effort. In my opinion...YES.... Would I do it again? Not sure... Anyway I thought I would share my creation with you and I am pretty pleased with it, especially since the only tools I had to work with were a hand screw driver, sandpaper (all hand sanded) a dremel, paddlebit and a screw driver (hand not electric). Thankfully a very nice man at Home Depot cut my wood to my measurements. When I got it all assembled I stained it with a light cherry stain (the wood is pine) and finished it off with clear glossy polyurethene. It will hold a calendar or picture page up to 6.25 x 7 inches.
