I made four of these chairs for Christmas presents. I had never made doll furniture before and really enjoyed doing them. Each chair had 19 pieces and was surprised that they took longer than I expected. They are made of solid oak and painted. The joints used are dowel, mortise and tenon.

Great looking chairs. I really like the detail work. I made some doll chairs this year also, but chose to make solid side chairs to save time. I’m always happy to have all of my fingers when I’ve finished a doll project.

Great project that will be treasured. As always, you do such a very fine job of the detail work. They turned out beautifully, but I know it sorta pained you to paint over that oak grain. Well done-great to see your post.

Very nice chairs. I’ve been making doll furniture for my daughter (and some of her friends) and have determined that even though it is small it still takes the same skills and sometimes is even harder than the big stuff.
