Project Information

The striped dolly took a lot of gluing up, Titebond 111. the result was ok but the hat chipped out so I had to square off the edges.
The other lesson learned was with the other dolly. The dress part only needed short blanks glued in that region to get the different coloured effect, rather than the full length because most went to waste.
Anyway the Feast Watson wipe on poly does a great job as I recently swapped over from Minwax.

Nice work on the dolls, Tony. The lamination adds a different dimension to them!!

Cheers, Jim

I see your back playing with dolls again. The one on the left with the trimmed brim is super.

Jim, thanks for your comment. The laminations are a bit risky and a bit messey as well on the glueup.

Thanks Bob, the laminated one is a bit messy but worth it in the long run.
