An American Girl Old Fashion School Desk. The perfect place for the AG doll to study while the young lady owner does her studies. Made of a very unique wood and special treatment to bring out it beautiful grain. As always, constructed with real furniture detail and quality.

This is made from a wood, sold at Lowes, called “craft wood”. It looks a little like pine, is soft and in expensive. For a first finish I used boiled linseed oil to bring out the grain detail and add a little color. This I finished it with spray shellac.

This will be placed in my fall craft shows unless I happen to sell it first. Either way I don’t mind as I have time to make more.

-- Just learning the craft my Lord and Savior Jesus Christ practiced.

Doll sized? Lovely!

Would like to make something like these for my kids, but would be full-sized as none of them go for dolls (action men included)

-- It's worth every moment of effort you put in if the kids enjoy it!

Beautiful mini desk and chair, wonderful details that I’m sure will make the little lady very happy. Amazing work!
