Kids in the Shop! #8: 11 Months in the Shop Together- March

104 days ago by clieb91 | 9 comments »

Well it has been a productive month in the shop for my daughter. She has tackled some pieces for her dollhouse that she wanted to make on her own. The first was a small easy chair and yesterday we worked on two beds. The chair was her idea and came straight from the scrap bin, at this point the miter box is the easiest way for her to work on cutting the scraps she has been using and she is happy to be using it, just working on those muscles. :) The chair consisted of just two pieces...

1192 days ago by rogerw | 2 comments »

Been installing flooring, wainscoting, paint, and fireplace. This is taking longer than I had anticipated. I am quickly running out of time. Here are some pictures. The fireplace is made of layered mdf. i then took a rag and dabbed on some joint compound to give it that texture. I think it came out pretty good. See ya next time…

Barbie Dollhouse #3: First floor walls erected

1222 days ago by rogerw | 6 comments »

Had a productive past few days and got all the walls cut out and erected. Here are a few pics of the progress. Cut some shallow dadoes to locate the walls into their locations The ceiling for the first floor had to exactly match the floor so this was done before erecting the walls using a flush trim bit in the router and the floor as the pattern. Now that the ceiling is done the walls go up. For these next 3 shots I layed the ceiling in place. It gave t...

My Journey #4: More on the dollhouse

1381 days ago by Trimble | 3 comments »

Well, a few more days have gone by, do I thought I’d post another entry here. Last time, I mentioned the dollhouse kit that I need to build for my daughter. It’s a nice little kit, but it comes with some very thin plywood that tears out every so easily when punching it out of it’s frame… I’ve spent much time popping out the pieces and sanding the edges. My wife bought some paint in the colors that we determined my daughter likes, but we still haven’...

Mikros Kosmos #20: My first dovetails!

1413 days ago by tyskkvinna | 10 comments »

So the discussion in my last blog really got me thinking and for whatever reason this evening I decided to give dovetails a shot. I’ve never done any sort of locking joinery before… in fact I’ve only even tried mitred joints a few times without all that much luck. I figured it out. This is 3/32×1/8 balsa wood. It was just two scrap pieces I thought I’d see if I could actually do it. Determining that, in fact, I could, I set about making the drawers. ...

Mikros Kosmos #19: And we're back

1414 days ago by tyskkvinna | 13 comments »

Hey everybody! Haven’t been able to make any progress on this project lately, due to lots of travelling and then the work backlash that happens after lots of travelling.. Last night I had some time avaiable and decided to work on this. I am using simple balsa wood for the frame of this. There’s no reason to use anything heavier. So, I glued together the base frame and then glued some heavy cardboard to it. I considered using wood for the bottom, since traditionally pl...

Mikros Kosmos #18: Another tiny update

1438 days ago by tyskkvinna | 5 comments »

Today I took off the tape holding the table to the wall, and a little bit of the wallpaper came with it! Ooops! Fortunately I was already kicking around a plan for what to do there. I had these little mirrors, and I was going to use one of them anyway. But I had already been kind of pondering how to make it look like it wasn’t an afterthought.. So this was just perfect. Unfortunately I didn’t think it through too much because I didn’t know what I was going to use for the...

Mikros Kosmos #17: A little update.

1439 days ago by tyskkvinna | 3 comments »

this is what the table looks like un-taped. I also added the inlay which I think ties it into the rest of the house really well. I have to say, there is something about the balance between modern and the traditional. This is what it looks like from above. So what I did to the sink was spray it with satin nickle paint and then clear gloss. It gives an interesting look when it is finished, I think. I like it. I encountered a minor problem with the doors upstairs. The epoxy I po...

Mikros Kosmos #16: Tedium

1440 days ago by tyskkvinna | 8 comments »

Where we left off: I mentioned putting the epoxy on the main floor, and here it is. It looks great! :) It’s hard to convey in photos, but the wood really shimmers. I think the combination of shellac + epoxy was absolutely perfect. I think if I had just put epoxy on it, it wouldn’t have the same feel. The padauk in particular really shines – it has a lot of figure. It also bleeds, as you can see in the corner there. I don’t mind (and there’s nothing I c...

Mikros Kosmos #15: Not quite ready for a bath

1443 days ago by tyskkvinna | 21 comments »

I made a bathtub. This was a chunk of mystery wood. I cut it down to size and milled out the interior. I painted the interior white. I played around with veneer. I’ve never used this before… not sure how I feel about it – would perhaps be nicer to work with on larger materials and/or blocks without tub holes in them.. lol I used some purpleheart for trim. I’m going to do some fancy trim to this.. not quite sure what. But it’s far from done. I thi...
