Product Description

From the Author

Having collected country antiques to furnish my own house it seemed obvious to me that I could combine my interest in vernacular furniture with my love of all things miniature, and then share this with other minaturists who enjoy furnishing their own dollshouses.

From the Inside Flap

Antique country furniture - once made by local craftsmen and journeymen - is becoming increasingly popular in our homes. Seduced by the unique, attractive looks that can be found, many people are inspired to renovate older pieces, and so add variety to mass-produced modern furniture.In this engaging book, Alison White introduces the miniaturist to the fascinating subject of country furniture with fifteen original, wood-based 1/12 scale projects. As well as illustrated, easy-to-follow instructions, the projects provide background history, allowing doll's house owners to tailor their furniture to suit a particulare era or region.The projects are set out in increasing order of difficulty, so that anyone trying all 15 will learn new skills progressively and gain new confidence in their abilities - no special expertise or previous experience is required. As stand-alone items, these designs will enhance any modern dolls' houses, as a complete set, they provide an excellent base for a delightful country cottage.

Format: Paperback
In this first venture into involving beginners in her hobby, Alison has creaed a masterpiece!
The reader is not left wondering 'What does she mean?' as all the instructions are crystal clear, but she has also managed to leave an opportunity for individual creativity.The plans and photographs are very clear and the step by step approach will suit anyone from beginner to the more experienced.
The tid bits of historical background to each piece of furniture are fascinating...........more please!

A bit of a disappointment, the projects in the book seemed to all have been made of balsa wood and rather crude in appearance. The photographs of the finished pieces -showed they were poorly finished. I wouldn't recommend this book to anyone who wanted to make things that are accurately to scale.
