Once my kids finally allowed me to use my own machine, (kidding not kidding) this is the first design that I created!! I’m super happy with how it turned out. I went high end with the piece of proofgrade walnut that came with my glowforge purchase. I first engraved the headboard and footboard, and then glued the cut frame pieces over top. The base of the bed is simply a solid piece of pine. (side note: sewing mini pillows is HARD!) Can’t wait to make more pieces!
This is gorgeous. Can’t wait to see what’s next for you!
Thanks! The possibilities feel endless right now which is almost overwhelming haha
Totally agree. I had a reason for getting the GF (cutting bookboard for bookbinding) that I’ve not even tried. Also, I had an idea for a first project that I still haven’t done 2 years later.
I bought mine to cut leather for zekkens…I haven’t cut a single one. The only leather I cut so far was for a passport wallet I designed…and it was so stinky I’ve been put off on trying again.
@Brandi This is a cute bed. What scale is it? I had to look up a chart for dollhouse scale. I made a queen sized bed for 1/12 using that chart…but apparently it’s the size of a Barbie bed.
Oh man I feel you. There are just so many things to make and so little time! I haven’t been brave enough to try leather yet because of the smell but I did make a bookmark with vegan leather. The dollhouse is 1:12 size which is standard dollhouse seze. Barbie size should be labeled as 1:6 scale. The rule of thumb is every foot in real life = one inch in 1:12 scale. Hope that helps!
It gets hard when it comes down to inches. Personally, I think it is the right size, but the right size for a queen bed, which probably isn’t normally put into a dollhouse. So I made a full and twin just to be safe. Twin seems to have been the winner. Customer said it was the perfect size.
This was the test of the queen I made…it does look a little big, I made several other versions until I got it right.
Welcome. It looks like your Glowforge will be a big help for making mini things. Nice job.
Wow! That’s like going out for a jog and doing a marathon!
This is so adorable!
This is super cute, well done!
Very pretty! A nice use of your walnut!
Really Awesome!!! I love Miniatures! Great job on the Pillows! Welcome to the Community! Can’t wait to see more of this!
Thank you! Yes I’m so excited to experiment
Thanks so much! Those teeny pillows were not easy
Thanks so much!
