MM15: Basic Furniture Making
Make your own country casual furniture using simple hand tools and basswood. Learn basic techniques for making a table, chair and antique pie safe. Applying these same techniques, you will be able to furnish your miniature home with dressers, bookcases, beds, as well as more ornate tables. Let Joyce Bernard, an outstanding craftsperson and miniaturist for the past 30 years, also share her techniques for finishing the furniture with paints and varnishes. These are great projects for miniaturists who want to be able to make everything themselves.
