this little project came about from my mother in law (que scary music)....(love you really snake face)
she had just redecorated her bath room and went for a naugtical theme…light houses and boats….and low and behold a space was found that needed filling ….a challange was set and of i went….a beach hut in small scale….
hmmmmmm…what can i do ..or use…the machines i use are to large to produce small section timber….hmmmmm
so i went for a drink….a hot choclate in a local coffe establishment….then it hit me….coffee stireres used by people every day to stir….piont out the window with…and snap for no reason….
so like a trained ninja i releaved them of a few hundered….
i used super glue and a scalple and a little jig to help gluing the paneles structure nice and square….even went as far as haning the door and fitting door stop…
total time spent a few weeks in the evenings while watching some thing on tv…

Nice work

Must have been lots of coffee there do you have any stats on the total number of sticks, hence the number of coffees.

I built a dolls house for my son and cut up the decking from stock should have thought about the sticks would have been a lot easier!

i love useing them…as long as your main struture is square then all will be fine…treat it like a full size building project…accurate measurments …i even made a miniture cutting block and a small saw from a broken pull saw….you can see in picture no.5 how i consruted the walls…its easy…give it a go
