Finally finished a doll armoir for my daughter after about a month, including a lot of time over the Holidays. I decided to make it out of plywood and poplar so I could just paint it. It was rewarding because I got to do some new things: cove moulding on the tablesaw, ogee feet, raised panel doors, and antique paint. Thanks for looking.

Hey Dick Miller – recently built a doll bed for my daughter for her AGD. The dolls themselves are a standard 18” tall. I made the bed side rails for the bed at 22” and coupled with the head board and foot board, the total bed length comes in at about ~25”. Without measuring, i think the width is close to 12 – 14”. I would have sent you a private message but i dont have enough posts to send a private message….

That is a nice piece. My daughter and I (she is 7) just built a bed for her doll. As soon as we were finished she said, “and now we get to build her a closet”. Looks like I will need to start something like this soon.

- Richard Miller: i based the plans off the bed I made for the dolls off of the site ana-white.com. She has posted a few different types of beds for dolls this size, the farmhouse style is what my daughter ended up wanting.

The one I build will definetly be smaller than yours. My daughters both have enouth furniture as it is. I will probably cut this down by half with 1 drawer, that way they each can have their own. Thanks though, I’ll keep the offer in mind.
