Photos of a date wheel / week finder project I’ve just finished.
The outer ring rotates with respect to the inner ring. To use, align the arrow with today’s date, and you can easily find the date any number of weeks in the future. I cut a design onto the reverse side just for the heck of it.
Material is medium maple proofgrade, font is Cheltenham condensed
There are two aspects of this design which may be of interest to the forum:
I rubbed candle wax as a lubricant on the laser-cut edge between the inner disk and outer ring. Without the wax, there was too much friction to turn the disks.
The outer ring is captive to the inner disk; it doesn’t come off. A cardstock ring is glued to the outer ring, and rides in an engraved slot between the front and back disks.
