I'm a newbie in doll house construction
I had problems with making furniture, so my husband bought me a doweling jighttps://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
I live in Yorkshire in the UK. I'm hoping to do some basic refurbishment on my old Lundby dollshouse (1960s vintage). After that I want to build a Cotswold thatched cottage, based on one in a series of books by Miss Read.
I was wondering if there were any really good basic beginner books please?
I love sewing and knitting and one of the things I'm really looking forward to is making miniature textiles for both houses, given the era I think my Lundby needs a crochet afgan throw! I'm hoping to make rugs (started a French knot kit), patchwork quilts, cushions etc for the cottage.
I am restricted energy wise as I have ME/chronic fatigue which limits things a lot, so both projects will be very slow.
Good morning, not sure I am putting this in the right place or the right way but here goes. I got addicted to minis eons ago drooling over pictures in a Miles Kimball catalog. My dad finally built me a little shadow box thinking that would cure me not! That was followed by a Pepperwood Farm. I have 4 'completed' (nothing is ever really finished is it?) and several Greenleaf kits that will be bashed one day into a village.

Just wanted to introduce myself here! When I was 10, I got a Willowcrest Kit for Christmas. My dad was supposed to help me put it together... It is still in the box almost 30 years later. I’m looking forward to putting it together with my daughters. We’re going for a subtly haunted look.
Inherited a collection, and I'm overwhelmed !!
Hello and help!!
Lol, not lol...I'm completely overwhelmed!! I inherited about 500 different miniature items...no houses or rooms, hardly any furniture, lots of handmade really cool stuff, different scales...I don't know what to do or where to start. I began cataloguing about a year ago, and was so overwhelmed with the quantity and variety that I tapped out. I have tried to figure out what my Mom's plans were , but we dont see what she did. Help, ideas, advice, guidance needed and appreciated. I have some REALLY interesting items, with amazing detail and can only imagine what she had in store.
