Miniature Real Estate

And so it begins- hopefully it can be completed before my daughter’s birthday, this one or the next….. and not have it take so long that she will learn to read, let alone read this blog! Better be finished before she gets too old to play with it, let alone turn 16, 21 etc!

It will be a long, drawn out affair, with much construction required, including many turnings. Dolls houses can be quite complex things when done properly!

As a bit of a test, I made this vase (Huon Pine) using typical techniques, just on a small scale.

The flower was something whipped up with Jessie out of pipecleaners until I can make something suitable.

It is about 20mm high. (Sorry for the image quality- taken on a mobile phone)

  1. Err Stu sorry if I’m out of line but what actually begins?

  2. Go for small anytime, miniature turning is so much fun, and you can whip up a lathe from a dremel for it. Looking forward to more entries
