How do you know if something is living in your plant?
Here is a quick blog (mostly for Janet because I cant send pictures to her work email) about my little hobby (pun intended).
This month I joined the MEKA (not sure what it stands for). Probably something like "Miniature Enthusiast Kingston Awesome". maybe... Anyway, this month one of the members did a tutorial on how to make a spiral staircase. I am still not done the staircase and like I have mentioned before, I have no house to put it in. The process is pretty simple. You just need some dowel and small cheap wood pieces and a friend with a drill.
Step one: (what you need)
|What you need. Pieces of wood that look like this.|
|staining my hands and my stairs|
|assemble by over lapping one hole in the top stair with one hole in the bottom stair and connect them with the dowel. The dowel should be snug and not require any glue.|
|Almost done the dollhouse stairs|
Another option would have been to leave 3" of dowel sticking out of the top acting as a "hand rail". I decided not to go for it, which is a serious doll safety hazard.
|some touch ups|
When I bought the stain ($9) I bought a $1.50 pack of 5 little wooden (~1inch x ~1inch) pieces of wood. I stained a few of them to make cute rustic cutting boards.
