2x4 >> Doll Desk
My daughter wanted some desks for her 18" expensive brand name dolls, I did not want to spend expensive brand name prices so I made them out of scrap 2x4 I had laying around
The finished products, I made one left-handed to be inclusive.
Here is the pile of scrap I started with. I think I ended up using 4-5 of the 2x4 scraps, because the pile was about half this size after I was done.
I squared everything up on the table saw and cut to ~3/4" thick pieces for the desk/seat/upright pieces and ~1/2" for the other pieces.
These strips were in the best shape so I glued them up to make the desk & seat. I cut the shape of those out mostly with a jigsaw and then rounded over on the router table.
Here are the pieces that will make up the chair/desk support.
Tenoned on the table saw.
Mortised in the mortise machine.
Everything seems to fit, I rounded over the pieces that would not be supporting the seat or the desk.
Glue up. I painted the chair/supports white 2-3 coats of whatever white paint I had handy. The seat & desk got 4 coats of shellac.
