  1. From the album: Beacon Hill Furniture & Accessories

    Once all of the parts are sanded and stained, they must be glued. The kit includes patterns to help in assembly. This is set up on a piece of pink Styrofoam contractor's insulation board; it's great for pinning. The pattern sheet is covered with waxed paper. The seats don't have patterns, but their assembly is straightforward.

    The chairs assembled. The cardboard forms will be covered to make the chair seats. It was a challenge to glue them together without my magnetic jig, but only one was off enough that it had to be held with pins while gluing the back to the side pieces. Next steps, coating with clear satin finish polyacrylic and covering the seats.

  3. From the album: Beacon Hill Furniture & Accessories

    The Realife Miniatures kit furniture is on the small side of 1:12 scale and so should fit into the Beacon Hill's dining room quite nicely. The kit is old, so I tossed the stain and glue packets and am using a stain pen and Aileen's Tacky Glue for construction. I'm taking the time to round the sharp edges with sandpaper to give it a more realistic appearance. The staining is done prior to gluing. When completed, each piece will get a coat of clear satin finish polyacrylic to mimic a waxed surface. The kit included a piece of 1/4" x 1/32" wood that had to be soaked in warm water and bent around a heavy cardboard form. This will be glued under the tabletop for a nice finished appearance.

    My new dollhouse

    From the album: Craigslist Find: Heirloom Dollhouse Lot

    the dollhouse is larger than I thought but it is beautiful. It is at least 40 years old.
  8. Hello Everyone, I have several questions about different areas. I found a Victorian styled built dollhouse at a Flea Market but it needs some tlc. The highest point on the dollhouse is 33 inches tall. I am building multiple House of Miniatures Kits and Realife Miniatures kits, what is the best stain and polyurethane/shellac to use? Any suggestions? I have the Minwax 2 in 1 stain/poly, would that be ok? Oh and I bought the wood preconditioner since the wood is old and dry. I was wondering about flooring in a dollhouse? I want to do wood floors. Some of my floors just need a stain/finish, others need wood flooring installed on top because of the two pieces of wood coming together. Any product suggestions? Also if I use wood clapboard as flooring what glue should I use? Or is it best to buy the ready to install wood flooring? I plan on electrifying my dollhouse but I am not sure if I could do it myself or if I should have it done at the dollhouse shop near me? I want to have multiple outlets in each room to move lamps around. Also after installing the electricity, how do you wallpaper? The shop near me charges $10 per room for electric + $10 to wallpaper. My dollhouse has 5 to 6 rooms. I have a 1:12 or 1:1 scale dollhouse with small 10 3/4 inch deep rooms that are 9 1/2 inches in length. With ceilings that are about 9 1/4 inches tall. I want to add molding on the top and bottom of the walls. Is there a size of molding that would be best for such small rooms? Thank you for your responses, I am new to the hobby of miniatures. I need to learn the skills and secretes of miniatures. I appreciate any tips or advice. I have included a picture of my house and the wallpaper books that I will be using.
