Calendar Clock

A Hand moved Calendar Clock – fun for small children to learn days months and dates.
Carving in X Carve is not long for the clock face,
Nor for the hands

I finished the top in 2 part epoxy, but any finish would work.
I made the fonts a little bolder by overlaying copies of the text offset by a few thousandths.

I moved each hand up to x-y 0 – separately to save on material
Post a copy if you make this or a viariant thereof .
Thanks
