  1. Purchased bridle

    It looks great!
  2. The burrow

    I love the color too! Shannon’s kits are very well done!  
  3. Creating a tree look/bark etc

    For the roots I used foam that I carved with a heat knife.  
  4. Creating a tree look/bark etc

    For the top inside walls I used zebra wood veneer. Each floor was a different wood (again veneer sheets) that had knots. I was looking for ones with concentric rings to give the effect of the floors being within the center cut of the tree. Just a heads up, the veneer was tricky. It wanted to bubble and warp (especially the floors). My parlor floor bubbled badly, but I saved it with patience and a mini iron. See my gallery post about the floor.
  5. Creating a tree look/bark etc

    I use tufted grass sheets that have varied lengths of grass, usually 2 and 6 millimeter mixed for a realistic effect. I trim with scissors if I want it shorter. Scenic Express has lots of options, but I also buy through eBay products like this https://www.ebay.com/itm/HEKI-MINI-FOREST-ALL-SCALE-TUFTGRASS-SPRING-BN-1841/323823479142?_trkparms=aid%3D555018%26algo%3DPL.SIM%26ao%3D1%26asc%3D20131003132420%26meid%3Dfdf6284870ce473caf7a1b3be326decb%26pid%3D100005%26rk%3D1%26rkt%3D12%26sd%3D323823479516%26itm%3D323823479142%26pmt%3D1%26noa%3D0%26pg%3D2047675&_trksid=p2047675.c100005.m1851
  6. Creating a tree look/bark etc

    I used egg carton, paper bag, card stock, and gel medium for Moonlight Retreat. I was looking for a redwood effect so depending upon what Type of tree you want, your build up of texture will vary. For the interior I used veneer sheets cut to fit.  
  7. New door frame

    Love how it’s turning out  
  8. Mail wagon

    I love this wagon and it’s color. I can’t wait to see how yours turns out.  
  9. Dry fit progress

    I really like the green with the white.  
  10. Color Choices Real and Mini Houses

    Lovely!
  11. I sign, date and note my city and state on houses that I build and sell. I usually note the title of the house too. For smaller items I usually sign with my initials and the year. I really like seeing who made pieces I buy, so I appreciate seeing those pieces signed.  
  12. Potbelly stove - testing the lights

    It looks great!
  13. Birds on a Branch - 2 hours

    I love this pattern!
