A Gentleman's study

I finished making the changes in the desk.  Didn't want to alter the legs which are a nice part of it, so added pieces of the famous 1/4" wooden strips under the drawers and now the height is passable.  I also changed the handles which were too big.  If I find nicer handles than the beads I used I'll change these too.  Now it only needs waxing.  In my collection of mini chairs, I found a cheap chair which I believe I can upgrade and make it more suitable for the desk.


As you can see in the photos, I found a dog (I love it), a picture frame, made a table lamp from one of Mary's beautiful ceramic beads which she sent me, and also made an inkpot with a feather pen. I shall add a blotted and writing pad (Any suggestions are welcome).

I ordered two room boxes, one for this project and another for the sewing room.  Our post is so slow, I am afraid by the time they arrive I'll need a third one.  Meanwhile I am having time to complete a few swap miniatures for friends on the blogs. And, of course, time for longer visits to your blogs.

I found a tiny doggy and loved it so much I made a l/24" chair for it.  The chair was fun to make and you can see it beside the l/12" in the photo.  I used about half the measurements I gave in my tutorial
a few months ago.

As always, I am very happy to welcome new friends

  21. Oh Drora, Very nice. You did such a great job that I did not recognize the lamp as one the beads that I had sent you, I knew I was putting it into good hands. That was a very creative way to fix the height of the desk, it looks great. Your little dog is adorable, very loveable. Hugs
