Table and chairs for 18" dolls

I didn’t take many pictures of this build. It was pretty quick and simple. I used glue and my air brad nailer to assemble. These are sized for the American Girl dolls or any 18” doll. This set is going to a special little girl that loaned me her AG doll for some pics. But I didn’t get to snap pics of her table and chair with the doll.

I used pine with Early American stain and Arm-R-Seal poly. LOVE LOVE LOVE Arm-R-Seal compared to minwax. Don’t remember who suggested it…. But I really like it. Also used some of Charles Neil’s blotch control.

Going to try and do something different on the bottom legs of chairs. It wasn’t as easy as I thought it was going to be.

Thanks for looking.

Wow! that’s pretty neat. The finish looks great. I once made a dresser for my daughters American dolls, never a table and chair set. Nice work Angie. Now make a mini condiment holder.

Looks like Charles Neil’s stuff works pretty good. I just used Minwax’s pre stain conditioner on a pine piece and the stain still came out blotchy and looks really bad. Good job on everything. Looks good!

thanks guys! Actually… the cool thing is that I really do want to make a life size version. I’ve already made a toddler size one and loved it so much that I’m ready for a big one. Can’t wait!

LOL…naptownwood… yep… the aprons needed to actually not be as big.

I got mine at Woodcraft of Louisville. It kinda sucks because it’s an hour away. So I have to plan ahead. Can’t run out on a project and just run to the store.
