How To Create a custom 4-4-5 date table

I attached a screenshot of the fiscal 4-4-5 calendar for a client (2020 and 2021). Can anyone explain an easy way to convert this into a 4-4-5 date table in power bi, either with M, DAX, or some other method? I’ve seen some 4-4-5 date calendar creators out there but haven’t found anything that has worked for me.

If anyone can share a link to a solid how-to video or blog article, or share a file that allows me to input criteria that spits out a date table, that would be amazing. Thank you!

@BrianJ any ideas, Brian?
