I love the idea of a perpetual calendar, and I love shadow boxes, so I combined the two to make a shadow box calendar. The day numbers store on top and the month tags in a box on the back.
The box is made with 1 sheet of 1/4" maple (and a scrap of another) and the date/month tags made from 1/8" wood. I cut the numbers from 1/16" wood (because the number blocks are two-sided); you could probably use 1/8" wood, but it may be a little too chunky.
Right now, I’ve finished 12 different inserts, (haven’t photographed them all) with many more rattling around in my head. The inserts are made with a variety of 1/4", 1/8", and 1/16" wood pieces. They make a fun DIY project.
Looks like you have been busy. Very nice idea.
I love the interchangeable inserts!!
That is the coolest perpetual calendar ever! I love it!!
The interchangeable aspect of this is wonderful!
What a great idea you came up with. I like both too, but would have never thought of combining the too. Would love to see all you come up with!
That’s adorable! I could imagine the storage of all the shadowbox bits getting bigger and bigger as you find more and more things
Fantastic job and a great combination! This is the kind of project I find super inspiring, not to mention adorable. The Oz gnomes are too cute!
I love this! What a cute idea.
This is great! Your execution of the idea is so good.
Great fusion! With a gf innovation is endless!!
Love that these can fit any decor.
I think this might actually help a person keep the calendar updated.
I have several decor items that change with the season, but my perpetual calendar finally locked in on our anniversary date to never change again.
