  1. Doll bunk beds.

    Doll bunk beds I made for my daughter. They fit the American Girl doll sized dolls Poplar and 1/4" plywood, stained and finished with shellac. Magnets in the top and bottom of the posts hold them together when used as bunk beds. Pocket screws hold the rails to the posts. Edit: I did not make...
  2. American Girl Doll Beds

    This year for Christmas I built a pair of beds for my daughter's American Girl dolls: Saige and Julie. I found some poplar boards at Home Depot that were meant to be shelf boards, but at 48×8 x 3/4 inches for $5 they have turned out to be a good source of cheap wood that already has two flat...
  3. What to do with offcuts?

    When I resaw with my TK blade I get these thin offcuts. My friend uses then as fodder for his thinness sander and then makes scale furniture from it. He uses a model makers 4" Proxxon Bench Saw blade with a 1/16" kerf. For those that claim accuracy & repeatability do not matter and laugh at...
  4. Doll Rocker Cradle

    Kind of an unusual project. A neighbor lady wanted to know if I could fix a doll cradle she got at a flea market and of course I said sure, it's what I do. After I got it apart I realized that it was really beat - wood was rotted and kind of smelled old. I asked her what she was going to do with...
  5. 1st ever wood project! Toy shower 1:12 Scale

    I'm excited to show first project. A simple toy shower. It was cut as straight as I could with scroll saw- no pattern. Sanded. No stain/paint/little shower head etc as my 4 yr old refused to let it go! The tiny slits for curtain rod wire was a 1/16 hole then used the actual little scroll saw...
  6. Doll bed

    I made this bed for my niece's American Girl doll. Her mom made bedding for it, but I don't have a pic of that.
  7. Faun Marionette

    This is my first post, so I apologize if it's rather amature. I carved him in a couple of months at university. He is the first thing I've ever carved so I made alot of mistakes, which I seem to have covered up well. To begin with I worked out the legs and arms in foam board, then make a mock...
  8. Doll Bunk Bed (4 high)

    For my daughters birthday I decided to do something homemade. Of course I'm new to woodworking and also thought selfishly about the experience it would give me. :) I based my plans off of these: http://ana-white.com/2011/08/doll-bunk-beds-american-girl-doll-and-18-doll, but modified them to be...
  9. Original design - Superman wooden doll lamp/nightlight

    This Christmas, I decide to make an interesting and playful wooden lamp/nightlight for our offices secret Santa game. I have found some designs that look similar, but most of them are using the Edison globe with a long tail of power cable. However, because the recipientant have a young kid at...
  10. Doll Cradle

    This was made for my granddaughter 2 Christmases ago. First the elliptical parts were cut out with a saber saw. A template was made of the areas to be routed for the end pieces. The handles were cut out and then ends were sanded on a belt type stationary sander. Slots to accept the sides of...
  11. A-Frame Dollhouse and furniture

    Dollhouse Christmas present for my daughter. All made of 1/2 inch birch plywood. I'd like to build another on in the future requiring a bit more skill. The furniture was thrown together from some stuff from the scrap bin. It is based off a project on Ana-White…
  12. A bed fit for a queen

    Or maybe just for a doll. An American girl doll to be exact. I tried to get this done for Christmas since I knew we were getting my daughter a doll. But I ran out of time and so this will be for her birthday next month. I found the plans on Ana white and was torn between building this bed or...
  13. Dolly & Dolly Gone Wrong

    I saw these on a website, I think it was 'Pinterest' & decided to have a go turning them up. Fairly simple turnings out of 60X60mm blocks. I glued 3X20mm blocks & zipped them up with cable ties, great for clamping & re-usable. . I cut the corners off to avoid chipout on the lathe. You learn...
  14. 2 Doll Cradles from red oak

    The December 2018 issue of Woodworker's Journal has a nice and simple pattern for a doll cradle, that is designed to hold 20" long dolls. Both of my grand-daughters could use one of these, so I decided to build 2 of them. I used red oak. The 2 ends are 3/4" thick, the sides and bottoms are...
  15. Simple Doll Crib

    A simple doll crib that I made for my daughter for Christmas. A simple, but nice solid construction. Built to take abuse! (unlike the plastic one that it is replacing! It constantly needed to be reassembled while being played with!) I also constructed a drawer that fits nicely under the...

  17. American Girl Farmhouse Doll Bed

    My daughter received her first American Girl doll recently, and shortly after that I was enlisted to create this bed for her. The plan came from Ana White, and is pretty simple. It is made entirely out of select pine from the big box store down the street from me. Just a 2×2, 1×2, and 1×3, with...
  18. Miniature Lifeguard Tower for Garden

    My sister Karen has a good sized flower garden. Many years ago, she bought a miniature lifeguard tower for her garden. She puts a doll on the tower to watch over her garden. After many years, Mother Nature took her toll on the tower. Rather than replace it, I decided to build a new one. I...

    My granddaughters friend needed a special gift that could be painted. The friends mother asked if I could put together a doll bed for Ellie that would withstand her younger brother climbing on it. This is what I can up with, straight grain yellow pine should withstand most any big brother...
