A short woodworking video: creating a perpetual flip calendar. Author notes the design was derived from diagrams in US patents 1716222 and 1681235.

You'll probably see it in the YouTube recommendations, but here's a guy who made one using the same principles that also keeps track of the month and day of the week as well.

And here's a pretty good one made out of cardboard.

I'm very torn between the beauty of an even division of three kinds of wood for the number tiles and wanting to insert a tile that's blank on one side so you could have separate numbers for the 30th and 31st.

That was great. But also: what in the world is the machine at 2:36 and 3:03-- it's like some kind of miter edge stamping monster?

gwint, I wondered the same thing. It looks to be something like a Morso Model F Mitring Machine. Which would be handy if you made mouldings or picture frames all day.

I’m mostly in awe at the freehand typography.

Adding one more tile makes a total of 16, so you could have an even distribution of four kinds of wood.

Actually, maybe you couldn't because you need an odd number of tiles to give them space to move
