Years ago my Aunt made a Raggedy Ann Doll for my Sister complete with bedding and a cardboard box bed. Recently my Sister informed me that baby needs a new bed so my Niece can now enjoy the doll. I made this bed out of maple and purple heart. Mini frame and panel and mini mortise and tenon. Finished with an oil/ varnish blend wiping varnish. It was a pretty fun little project. The finished dimensions are 11 1/2 X 15” for the bed and the headboard is 6” tall and the footboard is 3” tall.
