Topic tags/keywords: question tip

Can anyone give me some advice on scaling down furniture plans to make smaller versions? I’m thinking of making a bombay chest jewelry box. Do you just take the dimensions and percent them or is there some kind of ratio involved? Thanks for any input.

It’s called the Golden Ratio. I’ve used it several times when building something from a concept.
