9780713483109: Making Miniature Furniture: The Essential Guide to Producing Exquisite Furniture in 1/12th Scale

The art of furniture-making in 1/12 scale combines elements of woodwork, marquetry and woodfinishing. The author begins with the tools and techniques involved and describes the basic joints - butt, long edges, mortice and tenon. He then instructs in the making of simple items of furniture, building up the readers' skills gradually. With increased confidence, readers are invited to attempt more sophisticated pieces such as a miniature collector's cabinet or a davenport desk. The processes of cleaning, trimming, sandpapering, raising the grain, staining, and using wood-filler are all clarified so as to achieve the necessary finer quality finish for miniature furniture. Additional advice is offered on cross banding, avoiding breakages, mitring, drilling and glueing.
