My first attempt at making dolls house furniture, approximately fifteen to eighteen years ago. I made these in 1/16th. scale.  I cut out all the pieces using a fret saw, (and I later had an electric scroll saw and band saw).  My late husband fixed the lid onto the piano for me, and also the lid on the Davenport desk..  I carved the legs of the piano, the desk, the chair and the little table the owl is on, using a Stanley knife.  I covered the piano keyboard with a free pattern out of a Dolls House magazine.

ORNAMENTAL OWL IN CASE, and TABLE.
The owl was originally a pencil topper,and the
black and gold edging strip around the 
table was a decoration on an old handbag bought in a Jumble sale.
(The glass case with the owl in, lifts off the table.).

ENJOY!
