Dollhouse Furniture - Playing with scraps - Send Wood

Was playing around with scraps today. I thought I would see if I could make Dollhouse Furniture at 1:12 scale. Appears I can. LOL I took one of my actual furniture designs (full size) and shrunk it down.

Mission Chest of Drawers. About 5"w x 2.5"H x 1.875"D

I am planning on doing the entire Bedroom, just wanted to see how it would turn out. Small misshap with the glue on the handles and I would definitely use mirror acrylic for the actual mirror. But overall I am pretty happy with it.

Happy Christmas Eve everyone!

Fabulous! That you were able to use your full size design is just cool! Did you have to make many changes, or did the shrink do all the work?

It scaled down pretty well. I definitely was able to get rid of things when I shrunk it down. Still stuck with somewhat of the same structure for the drawer supports. Much easier to build this small! Lol

Thanks! I see a few things I need to change, but otherwise works pretty well!

Oh my goodness (and not to be in any way patronizing of your work) this is ADORABLE.

I think the mini Glowforge would fit on top!

For sure - @deirdrebeth! This is OMG cute!!! My husband always accuses (proudly to his friends) me of making furniture - but this takes the cake!

HAHA! Yes I think it would!

Well, I don’t think I’d do so well on this chest of drawers, so I’ll keep an eye out on your Etsy store for when you link it. Lots of miniature enthusiasts besides me. And… I think Santa is bringing me some 1/16" walnut… maybe. :santa:

This 1/8” I should get some 1/16” and see what I can do with that!

I had to run a ton of pieces. But it was fun trying to figure what I ran. When I had to put each piece of scrap in. Lol

It occurs to me that when someone says, “I think this is what I want, but I won’t know until I see it” - you can whip this out! :stuck_out_tongue:

Which makes laser wood a business expense and a tax write-off!

Exactly. It will be good for prototyping.
