How do you store you holiday or vacation photos? We like to show ours when friends or family stop by, so we designed an attractive solution.

Store about 50 of your favorite snapshots right in the frame, then change photos easily and quickly whenever you feel like it.

No matter how beautiful its photographs, a calendar invariably looks tacked up when stuck to a wall or refrigerator. This frame makes any calendar look like a classy part of your homes interior. To ramp up the fun factor, it includes a variety of scrollsawn, magnet-backed icons for marking family holidays and events. They stick to a steel plate behind the calendar. We sized our frame to fit a 12 x 11 inch calendar that measures 12 x 22 inches when open. For a different size calendar, measure your calendar and adjust any part sizes before you start building.
Here is a low-tech, high appeal trio of picture frames. If you can turn on a router, you can turn heads with these eye-catching displays for your photos.

We have even included a plan for a spline-cutting jig for accenting the corners of the cherry and maple. The rectangular frames we will build here hold 5 x 7 inch photos and the oval frame holds a 3 x 5 inch photo, but the techniques in making the frames will work for any size.
