This little table and chair set is for dolls. I finished it today. :) Pint size versions of their full size counterparts, no nails or screws- all mortise and tenon construction. Table has through tenons and is 14 inches long and 8 inches high, approximately 7-8 inches wide. The chair is I think 8 inches high and 5 inches wide. The doll shown is an American Girl doll that belonged to my girls when they were little. :)

Socal- the chair sits level- the surface it is on is not. LOL Maybe I better go take those photos again.

Ah yes, when my girl was little, she was definitely a doll player – and would’ve loved this greatly.

Thanks everyone. Actually it was my sweetie Len who kept badgering me to make a doll set of log table and chair. He said they would be “cute.” So I made them when he went to the gun bash yesterday. So Abbott- you better go cut some twigs and make a set of those for your house. :)

Good work.
Not sure why the doll has a “scared stiff look”, those chairs appear to be very solid. lol

Do you do your tenons with a rounder?
This is the type of project I would like to do with my Grandson, a way to go yet he is only 21 months.
My Grandfather got me to make natural furniture, I even got my first penknife from him for whittling the tenons. Great memories.
