I decided it was time to tackle something other than shelves, furniture wise. So I decided on making a table.
I have to admit, I found a few helpful tips + a plan ON CASEY'S MINIS. This blog has great tips, tutorials and so much more!
Again, the plan for the table is from Casey's Minis (although I tweaked it a bit) and I take no credit for it, only for making the table ;)
I sawed the legs by hand after cutting the straight parts.
Here is my trusty saw :)
The legs already cut out and assembled, only the top left to glue.
And the finished table :) I still have to stain or color it, haven't decided yet....
Another project for this week was a chair. I saw something similar on one of the miniature sites, but can't remember where. If anyone knows where I could have seen a similar chair please let me know.
The chair is 5cm wide, 15cm high and 4cm deep. The table is 11,5cm wide, 7 cm deep and 6,5cm high. They're both made of pear wood.
The chair still needs to be painted and I have to make a cushion for the seat.
I know that to an experienced miniaturist this doesn't look like much, but I'm so very proud of myself :) These turned out great!
And finally, I had time for another fantasy bird. This one was named Helga :)
Again made of air drying clay, over which I glued feathers. She will probably get a stand to sit on, or perhaps she'll sit on one of the furniture :)
Another project these past few days were stairs. I wanted to make a spiral staircase but couldn't quite figure it out, so I made a regular one with a twist. It still needs a fence, which will be made of toothpicks. And after the staircase is done the upper floor can finally be fitted in!
And this is all for now. Quite a bit work done, but still lots more to go :)
