I started building this (plans from Norm Abram) 6 years ago. It was supposed to be for my then unborn daughter. Well, life happens and that along with all my woodworking projects went idle for quite sometime. For about a year I have been slowly getting time in my shop and decided it was time to finish this thing! Now my daughter can have it for her dolls.
The box joints and complex angles were a major challenge for me. I had never done them before and built a jig for my table saw (shop smith) but they are far from perfect. I learned just how little room for error there is on a box joint jig! Wood is cherry with a natural danish oil finish. Still trying to decide whether I should put a poly or shellac finish over that, maybe I’ll figure that out in the next 5 years :)
