    Usual scale is 1" to the foot, but I'm not sure how universal that is anymore. To be safe, see if you can find out the scale of your grand niece's dollhouse, or the size of a piece of furniture that fits into it. (And, depending on her age, a precise description of just what she has in mind!)

      Wasn't there some Barbie doll furniture in one of the Scroll Saw magazines?
      I think so, and it had to be within the last couple mags because I haven't been subscribing very long.

        I think Barbie dolls are larger than normal dolls, a scale of 2" to 1' or 1:6. Oh, and Wikipedia agrees with me .
        There is no opinion, however absurd, which men will not readily embrace as soon as they can be brought to the conviction that it is readily adopted.

          Catlyn,
          I did the test cuts for the Barbie furniture pictured in the article. That is what she saw.
          My Father built the doll house for her mom with hand made cedar shingles.

            I would find out what size dolls she has first.
            Just in case you are interested in purchasing doll house furniture books,.......

              Good point, WD. Is it for the house, or for the dolls?

              BTY, Rolf, check out my blog for the picture of my "furniture suite" of boxes. It might give you some ideas, especially for using small scans for a personal touch. Kids love them.

                Thanks for the info Denny. When I cut acrylic I always use a skip tooth blade at a slower speed. I just did not realize that the epoxy would cut the same way as acrylic so I followed the materials list in the article.

                OK folks, picture. I finally figured out how to upload a picture. Here is one each of my version of the oak and cherry boxes. Note the axle peg holding the top in place but allowing it to move.
