Too Many Years....
I went for my favorite quarter inch house this morning.
The plan for this was in one of the old, small Nutshell News magazines. Long, long ago...
I think that I may still have the plans somewhere around here. If I find them I will let you know what issue. No guarantees though.
I never have been as fond of half scale as I am of one inch and quarter scale. So when I found the half inch plans, I scaled them down by half.
At the time, I was doing a lot of quarter inch with my friends.
The dark wicker chair on the front patio is made just like my larger pieces only with 28 gage wire and sewing thread, instead of crochet cotton.
Walter walked in while I was taking photos just a little bit ago and said..."Why don't I remember that?"
Maybe it's because I leave it on it's shelf and never clean it.
As I took the photos, I noticed that I missed the wrought Iron bars on the windows. I have to go back and do those, before I put it back on the shelf.
The chest in the corner is one that I made when I was doing shows. I did a lot of them with different tops. They sold like hotcakes. They could be used as a chest in 1/4" or as a jewelry box in 1" scale.
I will now stop pounding on the keyboard and go find a paintbrush. I have windows to wash...
See you tomorrow.
