I made these 2 simple chairs and table with some scrap oak from my hard wood storage shelves. Used only glue to assemble. Table features a bread board ends on a single piece of wood. The horizontal timbers under the seats and table provide strength to the leg timbers.

How do you like the giant screw driver and my plastic friend dressed in pink? :)

Both chairs and tables are doll house furniture (Barbie size)! :) Table is 8” long by 4” tall. No finish yet. My 5 year old grand daughter is pushing hard for PINK.

I glued up the simple bench hook below from mdf to aide in assembly of the furniture. Waxed the top so glue won’t stick.

I got a good chuckle out of this. I had no idea it was doll furniture until I opened it up. I was actually thinking how cool the rectangle shape would have been to make for my kiddo as opposed to the square table I made him.

She’ll love these miniatures. Nice work, Granddad.

As much as it may pain you, go with the pink. Little girls don’t care about grain and natural finishes, just loud colors.
