My daughter has a sticker shop (RisasPieces) on Etsy, and asks me for help from time to time with various projects. This time it was cutting out MDF blanks to make mini book keychains, and for a correctly-scaled (1:6) bookshelf to use for taking photos for them.
Well, it turns out I had already designed a 1:12 bookshelf made from 1/16 balsa, so I just scaled it up to double size and cut it from 1/8” Baltic birch. A few hours of sanding and gluing, and voila:
The only problem now is that she was so excited about using it that I didn’t get to put a finish on it, and now she has it displayed on her desk and doesn’t want to take everything off so I can work on it, so I guess it will just stay unfinished for now!
