  1. The idea to make my own 18th century chess set came first. But there has to be a game table even before the chess set. This is the second piece of furniture I've made and got to practice cabriole legs, mini wood carving and marquetry for the first time. The basic pattern came out of The Scale Cabinetmaker Magazine Vol. 12 #4 and I added the chess board top. The woods are walnut, white oak and a light colored wood with little grain that was in the wood scrap box, probably basswood.
  2. Hello from Victoria.

    Hello, My name is Victoria, I live in Moscow, Russia. I started making miniatures five years ago, at first it was a birthday gift for my Mom, a small roombox,at the time I had no special tools, still it was a very special experience. Since then I tried to make all kinds of miniatures - polymer clay food, petit point, bobbin lace in miniature, but furniture making is still my favourite. This kind of hobby was very very new in Russia when I began building my first dollhouse, so my blog was the only one on the subject, it felt a bit lonely. Later I discovered a wonderful community on Blogger and Facebook, I feel very lucky to be invited to this forum too! This is my latest project - bedroom set in art nouveau style, brass-inlaid chair and a dresser, all made of pear wood. We have no IGMA like guilds or schools, so I'm in a steep learning curve - woodworking books and Youtube videos are still the best source of information It's wonderful to be here with all of you.
