To Make a Miniature Step Stool You Will Need:

  • Craft Wood - I used basswood (Tilia or Lime). For a 1:12 Scale Stool I used 3/8 wide by 1/16 in thick craft wood. You can also use craft sticks or frozen treat sticks.
  • Miter Box
  • Razor Saw
  • Fine Pointed Pencil
  • ruler
  • Clamps
  • Sanding Block - finish sandpaper wrapped around a scrap of craft wood.
  • PVA (White Glue) or Wood Glue
  • Your Choice of Finishes - I used watercolor paints and acrylic paints for a shabby chic finish.
  • Paint Brushes
