Fairy Door #4

Wood poplar

Process
1. I cut the edges off the piece for the door frame
2. I sanded the door part down to a thinner size so it is inset in the frame.
3. I carved the grooves in the door and in the top of the frame
4. I used a leftover piece of wood that I found (in the semi-circle shape) for the step
5. I stained the frame dark brown (I really should look to see what colour it really is)
6. I stained the door red (ha. bet you couldn't guess that!)
7. I stained the step brown, wiped it off, and added a white stain over top
8. I used jewelry wire to form the hinges
9. I used the wire to attach the wooden bead to the door for the door handle
10. I glued it all together
11. I added a coat of poly.
12. I took pictures.
13. I'm now letting it dry.

Nice detail on the hinges! I really like the red door and I'm sure your little friends will as well. Thanks for sharing.

Hey Ms. Debbie.

Very nice.

I think your ready to step up to a full doll house. (or fairy house if you prefer).

Might be right up your alley!

great proportion, very cute. I don't know about you MsDebbie but I was amazed at how much time it took to make one of these.

Thanks Ted :)
They're all my favourites …. funny how you can get attached to these silly little things.

Snowdog: you're right. For one: it's much easier to cut a big piece of wood than a little slip of a thing and 2) the detailing, when added, gets pretty precise. (not that I'm precise.. but I'm working on it)
This one took me all afternoon yesterday

Very nice, what is the size of it? The hinges don't work do they (I know that is a dumb question or is it?) Like your stuff, and your pens. Keep up the good work.

this one is about 5" tall. Hinges probably work for the Fairies. I have never been able to open the door, though ;)

Thanks for taking the time to leave a comment-and for the nice words! :)
