My daughter’s ballet instructor discovered she had access to someone who could make her a few pieces for some performances. I’ve had fun making them some stuff.

1 – a fireplace that rolls around the stage to various spots
2 – a wooden present/box that hides a pair of ballerina toy soldiers for the nutcracker
3 – a rolling, functioning cannon that shoots streamers Bugs Bunny style with a pull cord
4 – One of my better pieces, a puzzle chair for a throne that collapses down flat and has no screws/bolts/hardware in it. Everything is held together with tab and slot construction.
