Georgian Dolls House Cabinet C 1770
Based on the original ‘Throstlenest House’ this
beautiful cabinet was built as an attractive piece of furniture, a focal
point for any room setting or as a stand alone piece. Made in mahogany
with a fine Georgian façade containing six tiny rooms to furnish at
your leisure. From a prepared cutting list of timber (over 300 parts)
each student will construct the cabinet and façade. The quoined edges
will be formed using wood blocks; the dentil moulding cornice will be
applied. The windows will be fitted with moulded surrounds; the
columned moulded portico doorway will be assembled and applied. The
double door facade will be hinged to reveal and access the rooms. A
simple mahogany stand will be made and a finish will be applied.
Approx. size in miniature 145mm High x 90mm Wide x 47mm Deep.
Completion is likely in class, however a detailed booklet is provided to complete the piece at home if necessary.
All tools and supplies
will be provided however please feel free to bring your own small tool
boxes and any optical equipment you may require.
