writingdesk

Here's a little writing desk I made some time ago. I wanted to do something with fingerjoints and what better way then to make a decorative chest or box. It is 15 x 21 x 27 mm. If measured in inches its ± 19/32 x 27/32 x 1 4/16.







filled with parfumed pink paper to write a loveletter to my husband





this is at the halfway stage

  1. This desk looks fantastic!Do you make hinges yourself? What kind of wood do you use?

  2. @ Victoria,
    Thankyou for the compliment. Yes, the hinge is homemade. Quite an undertaking and very delicate work. During the making of it I felt great respect for all miniaturists who make all their own fixtures and fittings!
    For instance; when you klick on the last image with the hinge you can see what a boggy mess the solder has left behind. I used the smallest amount of solder I could (tiny fleakes), but still I had to file a lot back. The wood of the box is mahogany.

    @ Virginia,
    Muchas gracias, pequeño pero lindo/hermoso!

  7. You are incapable of making anything I don't like :). Fab work, Debby. And this is a really good suggestion.

  8. Thank you all, for your nice comments. I wanted to show you this chest because its rather special to me. On the outside it's a bit plane, but within is this letter. Although just a rough draft it expresses deepbased feelings for my husband. I love 'm!
