This is the second version of an armoire for my daughter’s American Girl Dolls. The first version was made from scraps I had in the shop. My wife ended up showing it to friends and I ended up making (and selling) three that year (2010) for Christmas presents. I then got asked to make one more this past Christmas for some other friends. Due to time constraints I sold the original I had made for my daughter, promising to make her a new one.
Well here it is.
This one is 24” wide (4” wider than the first one), 10” deep (same as first), and 35” tall (5” taller than the first, though that is mostly in the legs).
It is made of Poplar and Plywood (1/4” and 3/4”). The panels are 1/4” ply. The top and the divider between “closet” portion and drawer are 3/4” ply.
Top edging is tongue and groove
Doors and Sides are stub tenon
The drawer is dovetailed with a glued on front edging treatment
The drawer sides are re-sawn to 5/8” and hand-planed smooth (don’t own a planer)
It will be painted white once I finish sanding.
