The first two pictures are of the dollhouse my Grandpa Lloyd made for my sister 50 years ago. The next three pictures are my version of the dollhouse I am making for my granddaughter for her birthday on 1/13. My table saw is the 8” Delta Homecraft that was my grandpa’s. Still working perfectly and I use it every day.

As you can see the new dollhouse is not yet complete. Painting is still to be done. I think that will be great job for Grandma. She will also make the curtains with our granddaughter as she is now teaching her to sew.

1/12/13: It is finally done and I added the last picture.
