Not too hard of a project. I wish I could make these in production and charge what American Girl does! Made from maple.
Main reason I posted this was to comment on the finish. It is Rustoleum ultimate wood stain black cherry. I wanted something dark and instead got something completely PURPLE! For better or worse I guess since its girly and fit for a doll then purple is OK. Still trying to get better finishes through experience and it ain’t easy.

Looks great and like the purple finish. Well made and has some heirloom quality. Great work!
