Scale miniature and dolls house chairs can be easily made in a range of styles using simple woodworking techniques. The instructions which follow show you how to make a basic chair with a back leg that extends to hold the braces for the back of the chair. You can adjust the shape of legs , the height of the back and the shape of the slats to make kitchen chairs, dining chairs, desk chairs, or bar stools.
I've shown the chair assembly using simple butt joins, but if you have a pin vise drill or a fine archimedes drill and a draw plate, or some round toothpicks and sandpaper, you can make more solid joins for your chair by drilling small holes in the center of the joins and gluing the joins together with fitted pieces of dowel, pinning the joins.
Standard Chair Measurements - Chairs vary widely in size. I based the chair in this tutorial on a simple wooden kitchen chair from the 1930's. Modern chairs and dining chairs tend to be sized at the larger end of the range. These measurements are for full size chairs. You will need to choose a scale and decide on your own measurements for your miniature chair.
