  1. I have searched the forums and cannot find the answer, so here I am! Hi Everyone!!! I am working on a front-opening Country Victorian dollhouse. When I received it, someone had already wired the front opening with the tapewire and made sure that it was connected to the hinges. Now, my issue is, I have no clue as to how to start the regular tapewire process and how to connect the two. Do I go ahead and put the junction splice and tapewire in the house as normal, but connect the new tapewire run to the hinges that already have the tapewire? I checked the handy dandy Greenleaf Gazette and only see an article for hybrid wiring and not tapewiring with a front opening-like how do you start after the front-opening has already been done? Here are pics of what I mean... Thanks everyone, truly appreciated. I can't continue to put this house together for my cousin until I get it wired correctly!! :-) *And I am up for the challenge!!! **I hope this makes sense! Bre
  2. What is the best way to do hinges on the doors of the Garfield, or for that matter, any of ther 1" doll houses. The scale brass hinges just dont seem to be as robust as they should be for a childs doll house.
  3. So I'm hoping for some advice from the furniture builders out there on how to hinge an oven door. I'm building myself a little stove for my San Franciscan, because 1. I don't have a lot of room and needed something to fit a particular space & 2. I just couldn't find anything that size that a. I liked. b. wasn't too expensive c. fit my theme of retro enough to be cozy comfortable but not olde worldy... lol So anyhoo, I've been building one out of the wood inserts from the windows of my kit (reuse, recycle, repurpose!) and I've hit a snag.... how on earth do I hinge my oven doors??? I've looked at my RL oven and don't think I could replicate the complicated contraption that is a hinge in that one! Then I looked at mini ovens on ebay and see they use kind of a U shaped hinge & pole contraption. Not sure I could master that either. Does anyone have any ideas. I've quickly mocked the pieces up below so you can see what I'm up against. There is paper bunched inside to hold the pieces in place and obviously the handles will be in two parts not across both ovens in one stretch but you get the idea. The tiny bottom doors are actually draw fronts for warming draws.. (oh, and my edges aren't that rough.. it's masking tape on the inside so that I don't get the enamel paint I'm using on the exterior on to the black interior.)
  4. Hey all! I recently acquired a collection of Xacto House of Miniatures 1" scale kits. I've been putting together the dower chest, and am down to the last little bit. Unfortunately, it seems one of the hinges is defective, and won't close all the way. I've done a good bit of googling in an attempt to replace it, but most 1" scale hinges seem to be 10mm, but these hinges are more like 6mm. Any suggestions? Thanks!
  5. I want to hinge the front doors on the BH. Miniatures.com catalog on pg.15 have different hinges. I really don't know which one to purchase. Any suggestions? Thanks
  6. I made my kitchen cabinets at least a year ago and I have been trying to find the right hinges ever since. A couple of weeks ago I found the right type of hinge on EBay but they were a little pricey. Then I discovered tiny screw in eyelets that I thought might work so I ordered some, very nice price and they are working great. I have put a picture in to show you but keep in mind I still have to install the center panels in the doors. I will put some detail pictures in my gallery if anyone is interested in how I did it.
  7. From the album: Whitney Plantation, Wallace, Louisiana

    The main house of the Whitney Plantation on the German Coast (along the west bank of the Mississippi River between New Orleans and Baton Rouge, Louisiana) is done in the Creole style. An itinerant painter worked on many of the fine plantation houses in this area. This is an detail of the faux marble on the exterior of the house. It is original to the house and has been meticulously cleaned and restored. The back gallery is done in more flamboyant colors than the front gallery. This door leads into the upper floor sitting room. I like the effect of the original wavy glass. It's not apparent in person but came out beautifully in the photo. You can see through to the door on the other side of the room and out to the front of the house. In the hot summer, both doors were open, which created an air flow that helped to cool the room.

    From the album: cabinet hinges

    I used very small screw eyes for the hinge. A small brad to attach the hinge. A small drill bit the size of the brad you will be using.
  9. I saw a tutorial once for making hinges, but I'm not sure where. Does anybody have any tutorials like that or practical experience trying to make hinges? I'm working in 1/12 scale.
