Start a New Hobby Week - Begin Woodworking in Miniature

By July 29, 2010

Follow me on:

If the other miniature projects this week haven't tempted you, perhaps you'd enjoy woodworking in miniature. Wooden miniatures include dolls houses and furniture, wooden models of cars, bikes, trains and planes, miniature wood carvings, marquetry and turned miniatures to name just a few.

Anything you can do in full scale, someone is also attempting in miniature. Woodworking in miniature has beginnings in some simple techniques and hand tools which can be used for all kinds of miniature woodwork. You don't need specially scaled wood, many miniaturists carve or build from scrap wood, old bits of furniture and picture frames, or wooden craft or stir sticks.

I have seen both of these before but did not buy the Schwarz one, but I might now. Jim Tolpin also has a good square plan in his book The New Traditional Woodworker, which is an excellent book!
