For the bookcase I used this instructional video for a 1:12 bookcase, and divided all the dimensions by 2.
For the books (Except the encyclopedias) I bought some digital book files from this source and printed them up and assembled per directions.
For the encyclopedias I photographed a couple sets (finally found a use for those!) that we have in the house, wrapped the photos around a strip of fome-cor, and made indentations between the books.
I made the tiny clock and picture frames myself. You may recognize the clock from some of my earlier work .
The shiny things are just a bunch of beads glued together.
It works nicely in scale with the half size Mission chair I made from @designvh619’s bedroom set, no?
Edit: forgot to mention the materials of construction. The bookcase was mostly made with around 0.8mm thick unfinished veneer, plus some medium thickness chipboard and some heavy card stock. Also a piece of wood paper stained to match.
I instantly recognized this was a Julie Warren video. I have all her books except the kitchen.
I can see the love you have for miniatures. This piece is incredible!!
If your travels someday bring you to Knoxville, Tennessee I want you to visit. I no longer have any friends who create miniatures.
Thirty (30) years ago, I was a member of 2 local miniature clubs. At the time I was the youngest member being 22 everyone else was 65 and older. Unfortunately all of my mini friends have traveled to the big mansion in the sky.
Thanks for the invite! I will certainly contact you if we are ever in your area, and I hope you will do the same if you are ever in St Louis. I have a few tiny bits and bobs I could show you, although not very many. I seem to have too short of an attention span to take on a project of any significant size. But making tiny things means I don’t burn through material very fast—I still have some of my original Proofgrade material from 3 years ago!
Nicely done. I make miniatures and this a fine example. I don’t know what your scene is but you may want to age it and rough it up a bit. See some of the work at: https://thewonderofminiatures.home.blog
