  1. A jigsaw should work just fine. You may have some splintering along the cut edges. Welcome to the group
  2. I stopped by Hobby Lobby and the dollhouses where marked down. The Bungalow was priced at $79.00. I don't know if you can use a 40% off coupon on them, but that is a great deal. I don't know if it id just this particular location?
  3. What tools do you have? You would need to drill a hole in the corner of each side big enough to fit a small saw blade.
  4. Hi Amy, I think you might want to do some research online about lead paint repair/ restoration or google how to clean items painted with lead paint etc.....https://www.fivestarpainting.com/blog/2019/july/can-you-paint-over-lead-paint-five-star-painting/ It sounds like you have a wonderful heirloom
  5. https://dfarq.homeip.net/tootsietoys-and-lead-paint/ This article might help.
  6. I wish I wish they made that little cheap saw so it could swing the full 180 degrees. I want this saw
  7. I needed to cut the ends of Popsicle sticks to use as flooring, I taped about 12 together at a time and ran it through my band saw. For mitering I use the Easy cutter or my miter box. I have one of these little chop saws https://www.harborfreight.com/2-in-mini-bench-top-cut-off-saw-62136.html It makes beautiful mitered cuts, BUT ONLY up to 90 degress. There is a way to flip your molding upside down to achieve the corresponding cut, but for the life of me, I cannot cut complex moldings with it. I can usually get one angle and then I have to cut the other in the miter box. I quit trying to figure it out, it caused too much anxiety as I wasted too many pieces of crown...... It is good for quick cuts.
  8. Okay...they are so cute, and priced so nice. I want many!!
  9. Could you post a picture of the front that shows the whole house, roof line etc.....I think it is a bash of different houses???
  10. Can you show us the back? That might also help ID it.
  11. Welcome Lindsay......Your story sounds familiar. After college I found all sorts of free time and started doing crafts. Then I got married and started a family. I always loved miniatures too, but I didn't start until I found free time again...... my kids are now grown. Enjoy your new hobby!
