I more or less followed the plans found in the book “Making Doll Furniture in Wood: 24 Projects and Plans Perfectly Sized for American Girl and Other 18” Dolls”. This project wasn’t always easy to follow (at least for me), and missed a few pieces here and there. But it was more than enough to guide me toward completing the project.

We’ll add some decals in the next few days to girl it up a little more.

This would be a great “introduction to mortise and tenon” project.

Nice detailed work Mat. So how did you cut out the mortises? Looks like a lot of hand work with some tiny chisels.

I cut the tenons on my table saw. I cut the mortises using a 1/4” mortising bit and my drill press. I used a 1/4” chisel to clean up the lines in the mortises after the holes were drilled.
