This is a gorgeous design - Iove the trees and mountains. The only “problem” is that the tolerances are too tight between the spinning circles that have the day, month and year and the glued in separator pieces. This creates a great deal of friction when the circles are moved to adjust the date.
If you look closely, one of the separator pieces has broken loose at upper left between August and 11. I am an ‘old guy’ so my fine motor skills are not perfect. It sure looked like I had the separator pieces perfectly aligned and they were glued down with the circles in place to insure this.
It would be great if we could download and inset the circles a few thousandths of an inch so there is less friction. But, to my knowledge, this is not possible.
So, for the next one I make, I will probably sand down the edges of the moving circles which is not as good a solution as insetting the vectors on the circle . Also, the width of the separator pieces is very narrow as you can see from the one sticking out between Aug and 11. A better design would be to make the separators slightly wider so there is more glueing surface to increase strength and the circle rings slightly narrower.
I do love the deign but wish I could edit the circle vectors - if that is possible - it would be great to know how.
I plan to make several of these calendars so will probably measure the diameter and width of the circles and import my own that are inset a few thousands of an inch as a solution to…

I loved it, Had to adjust a ring just because it was snug but really was nothing. I even created a stand for it just see what it would like on the shelp. Great job and thank you!!
