  1. Dollhouse/Bookcase

    Another request from my wife and two girls.
  2. Dollhouse

    I made my first dollhouse for my granddaughter for Xmas. It was a labor of love. Used about every woodworking skill I had. Somebody gave me a huge amount of 3/8 hardwood plywood so I figured I would try to build this. I woodburned some of the floors to simulate wood. Doors were attached with...
  3. Dollhouse style childs bed

    Birthday present for my now 5 year old daughter - same one that was in the rocking chair - they grow pretty fast. Bed is a doll house/bookcase headboard with a white picket fence footboard. A few sketches but mostly designed on the fly but based of typical twin bed dimensions for the mattress...
  4. First Doll House Bookcase

    This is a project from 2 years ago. My daughter saw a dollhouse book case at a local store and wanted one. However, I just couldn't bring myself to spend almost $260 on a bookcase that I new could have easily been built for a fraction of the cost. So this is the result. It's the first...
  5. Second Dollhouse Bookcase

    For those who read about my first bookcase, jump ahead approx. 18 months. Little #2 was on the way. I held off on building anything until we knew whether it would be a boy or girl - and for us, that meant waiting for "delivery day!". Number 2 was also a precious little girl so another doll...
  6. Dollhouse Bookcase

    This is a bookcase I built for my little girl. I had a plan in my head, then the wife gave me a Pottery Barn Kids magazine with a very similar design. It is poplar plywood with a poplar face frame. I routed out some windows and added some window trim. Roof is at a 30 deg angle. Approx...
  7. The Recycled Doll House

    My wife got the idea to build a doll house for our grandkids. She got a big drawer from the restore. We designed it together and I divided it into floors and rooms not paying much attention to level or square; the kids don't care. I added a roof, a fireman pole, a chimney, windows and a...
  8. Two Dollhouses

    Back in the late spring my cousin called me to see if the offer to use my shop was still open and could I help him with a project! I said of course it would be fun! About 18 years ago he fell from some scaffolding and broke his back. Paralyzed from the mid chest down he only gets around in a...
  9. A DOLLHOUSE FOR MY GRANDAUGHTER

    This is a project I made as a Christmas present for my granddaughter Synnøve 14 years ago. She was 5 years old at the time. After she grew out of it she loaned it to a girlfriends little sister. A very cute little Chinese girl that had been adopted as an infant by her girlfriend's parents. Well...
  10. 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…
  11. Dollhouse

    Several months ago our son…. aka javajake.... asked me to build a dollhouse for his 3 daughters as their Christmas present. Since those 3 princesses of his are pretty special to this Papa, I knew I wanted to create something extra nice. I decided a 1:12 replica of our log home would be a good...
  12. Small Bits

    When you only have a small amount of time to turn, turn something small. These are very small bowls turned from Osage Orange for a friend who makes and finishes dollhouses. Both were turned on my MIDI lathe using a collet chuck and a very sharp Beecham skewchingouge. The platter is finished in...
  13. Cedar Log Dollhouse

    Due to my recent retirement, I decided to start making legacy toys for my granddaughters and their descendants. This is dollhouse 2 of 4 for my granddaughter, Avery. The plans for this 1/12 scale project were found in the "Canadian Woodworking" magazine...
  14. Colonial Dollhouse

    I found the plans for my first dollhouse (1 of 4) in the November/December 1991 issue of "The Woodworker's Journal". This 1/12 scale, Colonial dollhouse was a joy to build. I made it in 2002 for my granddaughter, Brianna, who helped with the construction. It took us 6 months to build. She...
  15. Barbie Dollhouse (with storage)

    Here's a Barbie Dollhouse that I built and my wife helped decorate. I thought it needed a place to store some clothes and dolls so I designed it with four spots at the bottom for Tupperware bins. We made everything with the exception of the toilet and the small plants in the house.
  16. Playhouse

    There is a soft spot in every man's heart for his daughter and mine came a week after my 50th birthday, my first and only child. I knew she would have many toys, trinkets and games from me, a woodworker who loved his craft and loved her; so when she came of an age that imaginative play kicked...
  17. Dollhouse Bookcase

    Man it is so good to be back, I haven't posted anything in so long. This is a dollhouse style bookcase that I made for our great niece. This was an interesting project, I basically went by pictures I found on the internet. the most challenging part was the angles for the roof. The other...
  18. A House for Gnomes

    For my daughter's second birthday, my wife and I designed and built a house for gnomes. As parents of a young child, it's difficult to find the time to work on a project such as this one, so the project was a compromise between speed and style. I used SketchUp to design the house, but we made...
  19. Barbie Dollhouse:Completed and Delivered

    Well, the project is completed and delivered… a bitter-sweet feeling. Been working on this thing, drawing for about six weeks and sawing since the middle of February, and have become a little attached to it but also glad it's over and gone to a very happy recipient. Oh that warm fuzzy feeling...
  20. Animal House

    I guess this can be called my first commission piece. During a trip to the BORG a few weeks ago, I brought my 6yo son with me. He saw a picture of a doll house while we walked the lumber aisles and told me his Appa (the big stuffed animal at the bottom) needs a house. I bought the wood and...
