Hi, my name is Elga and I live in South Africa. I love dollhouses and miniatures. My two biggest passions are furniture making and embroidery and of course the two combined. Welcome and enjoy browsing my blog.
I finally have all 5 tables glued together, here is the last one showing all the pieces.
The two on the left already have a layer of Danish oil on them, isn't the grain and color just fantastic?
View from the top, they all have a scrap piece of wood in the back where the sliding screen will fit in.
All four sides in one view.
Close up with one of the Queen Anne chairs, there are still a lot of work to be done, the candle slide, the small drawer that will have partitions for ink, pen, scissors, etc, the big drawer for the needlework, the screen in the back and the top that will be able to raise at an angle to form a writing slope. Oh and little caster wheels, my husband is helping me figure out how we are going to make those since all the commercial ones are too big for this project.
I am married and the mother of two grown up daughters plus two dogs and two cats. I love working with my hands and enjoy furniture making, petit point, doll making, crochet and knitting and I am also building a dollhouse to house all my treasures.
