I am starting to make a dollhouse for my daughter. Luckily at Christmas she will only be 7 months old. I think that means I have about 5 years until she will be ready for all the furniture and smaller pieces. So I need to get started now right. LOL!
Anyway here are the first two pieces. A dresser and a bookcase.
I made the fluting in the pieces with my bandsaw by setting the fence and raising the guard, then cutting into the piece about a 1/16”.
Thanks for looking.

Tim they look great. Far better then those I have attempted. Just to gove you a warning though my daughter is 4 and loves her doll house. YOu might not have as much time as you think.

Look forward to seeing other pieces.

Now for a real challenge, finding books to fit that book shelf.

Great job,Tim! Usually this is Grandpa’s job, but guess dads are allowed too. Keep up the good work.

Beautiful workmenship. Have you thought of selling these either commercially or at art and craft type shows. I know in my area (Florida) they have a doll show at least once a year.

nice detail! if you wouldn’t have taken that picture with the ruler i would not have believed they were miniature. i don’t have bookshelves in my home that look that good.

i’m building a dollhouse for my grand daughter right now and don’t want to get into the furniture. i only have until the middle of may to get the house done and with all the detail i am putting in this thing i am cutting it close as it is i think. i told my son he has to furnish it!

Very nice job. I’ll have to do the same for my daughters before too long. What’s funny is that your little toy bookcase just inspired me to choose the same design for my actual living room bookcase… Fluted trim and simple corbels (i think thats what the square trim piece is called?) So thanks for that!
