Tiny Furniture

A friend is putting together an antique dollhouse for a book he’s going to write. It’s in 1:16 scale, which is quite small. The furniture is Schneegas, which is a delightfully simplistic style, and easy for me to do on the GF for things he can’t find affordable antiques for. So far I’ve done a hutch, a vanity, a fire grate, some fencing, a book case, and then because I’m crazy… a functional spinning wheel and lazy kate full of bobbins. They aren’t the replica furniture that I’ve seen people here do, but they’re what was asked for, and SO TINY AND FUN to make.

Very nice work. That’s getting down toward the tweezers and magnifier scale

I was really testing the limits of the machine and the wood on a few pieces! That orifice hole on the wheel is definitely about as small as you can do and still have structural integrity!

I am building a wooden ship model and you do get down to thousandths of an inch in wood.

The precision of the GF was a godsend for trying to do something this small and still do some nice finials and things without them snapping off during positioning for book photoshoots (and my fat fingered construction)!

NIce work! Love the dog and fox!
