So my youngest daughter asks me if I can build a bed for her doll, hmmm. Of course I can I say just tell me the size you want and I’ll see what I can do.
She comes back with a little sketch and true dimensions and says how long till I get it? She’s very demanding but also very emotional, I pity the man she will marry someday. LOL
I had a bunch of scrap oak from a project so I set out to build a doll bed from red oak, red oak for a doll bed, I can’t believe it either.
I design and build all of my projects using autocad and my walnut sized brain. Here it is!
I have yet to add the very needed underside drawer for the clothes but it’s coming soon.
Hope you enjoy.

Nice job. I have 3 Granddaughters that have American Girl dolls (way too many of them). I just might have to try my hand at making them beds (but not out of Oak, I’m thinking Pine :-))

Nice looking bed. I made one for a friend’s daughter, but I used pine scraps. Cool idea about the underside drawers. I look forward to follow up pics.
