  • Has anyone made doll furniture for 18" American doll?

    I am thinking about making some doll furniture for my three great granddaughters for Christmas. Would like to see if anyone has made
    furniture for the 18" American dolls. I understand that you can enlarge the patterns for the Barbie dolls by 157%. Years ago I did make the Barbie furniture and it was fun.

    Just last week Wood Magazine posted a free plan for an 18" doll

    My daughter is expecting and they are hoping for a girl and if it is I will probably make this cradle and Grandma will make the Raggedy Ann doll.

      Thanks for the response.

      The cradle is really cute. I will keep it in mind. I will be making furniture for toddler type dolls that resemble 3 and 4 year olds. So I will be making tables, chairs, big girl beds, wardrobes, etc.

        I made the doll furniture featured in issue 16 of SSW&C, it's also in the new Making wooden toys magazine.

        I don't think it's neccessary to enlarge it for Barbie size dolls,

          I have made a canopy bed, dining room table and chairs, rocking chair (from the magazine) and designed a small side table for the rocking chair, girls love them all. Check your local library, there is a book out with plans for a lot of the furniture. I modifies the bed, dining table patterns since I don't have equipment to do some of the joints they showed.

              The issue that is in the upper left of this page has some doll furniture. I did the test cutting on it. It was scaled for Barbie but can easily be scalled up for the american doll.

                I made the furniture in from the magazine in small and large, excellent projects and patterns.

                      He puts biscuts between the long pieces, is that what you meant? He has stainless screws in the lips then puts the plugs on top of that. Scott, cutting one doesn’t take long. It’s the removing of the tiny drill hole, spraying each piece with distilled water, letting dry, sanding and sometimes flap...

                      Like Bob said clamp a straight edge to the table and adjust it to compensate for the blade drift. There are some blades that have no or very little drift. Like the Olson PGT series it also seems to me that the Pegas MGT 3 or larger cut very straight....

                      I now you do beautiful work but I have to say your attention to details on these baskets is impressive. soft smooth edges, no visible glue squeeze out. And of course the cutting boards are beautiful. I am guessing that Bruce cut a spline in the end of the board and then dowels. I have not seen that...

                      You are one busy lady. About how long does it take to cut one?
