Construcrion advice

Recommended Posts

Hi. everyone!

I'm a newbie in doll house construction

I had problems with making furniture, so my husband bought me a doweling jig:ermm:Woodstock-D4116-Doweling-Jig-review-300xhttps://pickadvisor.org/wp-content/uploads/2019/05/Woodstock-D4116-Doweling-Jig-review-300x300.jpg (don't know how to attach the image properly)

He's sure I can use it, as it's helpful in his workshop

 

Has anyone any experience using it?

If not, maybe you like the idea:dunno:

I'll be interested to see how that works in 1:12 and 1:24, especially the latter.  When I was working with 1/8" diameter dowels for chair legs I used round toothpicks for the rungs:

It might be helpful with joining individual boards like for a butcher block table or cutting board but dollhouses are usually made with plywood sheets attached with nails and/or wood glue and clamps. Wish I had one while reglueing my 40 year old butcher block table.  I personally don’t see a regular use for it.

      Hi, I'm Laura. I bought the Coventry Cotrage about ten years ago, started building and then... stopped. But, I've picked it back up again recently now that I have some space and I'm really enjoying it.  I just put in my first bit of wall paper! I'm looking forward to learning all of the things.

      Hello
      I'm Jill from Osage Beach, Missouri, originally from Omaha, Nebraska.  I have been looking at these dollhouses for more than ten years.  I originally wanted the Garfield, but it is so big.  Maybe I'll do it as my next house?  So I saw the Lily, love it, but it is also so big.  I decided to make my first house a half scale and I just fell in LOVE with the Fairfield.  I am a perfectionist by nature and I hope it doesn’t drive me crazy trying to get it right.  I love the “Don’t panic!” in the warm-up syllabus.  So I am just going to take my time and enjoy it as intended.  I look forward to seeing what all of you have to say.
      Take care in this time of uncertainty, Jill

      Hi I'm Rachael from TX. I have wanted a dollhouse my entire life. I am a DIY kind of gal so thought I should start with a kit. What better time than in a quarantine to start a new project? I will definitely be using this sight for much needed research. Thanks so much!

      Hello everyone I'm Cindy.. Happy (belated) Mother's Day to all the beautiful Mom's. Today I opened my 1st "Greenleaf (Orchid) Dollhouse Kit". I broke 2 windows already, but only because I was so excited. LoL..cough-cough.. :P I wasn't sure if I should use wood-filler or glue? I went with the "Gorilla-Glue" which seemed to workout just fine.. Crosses-fingers & holds-breath! I started a video too, so when the dollhouse is done we can watch it together. :) Ok, tty'all real soon.

      My name is Kim and this is my first real dollhouse. I have been in love with the Garfield since I was 8 years old and my grandfather took me to the local hobby store to get some items for his train set. I am now 43 and for the first time I have a home that will allow me to finally have this house. I also have a 6yo daughter that will be assisting me with the project as much as she can.  All I need is as much advice as I can get on this. I do already know that I will be replacing the doors and windows so any help on that would be greatly appreciated.
