    doll house

    Not sure if i should post or not,but here goes any way. this is a doll house i made for our granddather. It's a rather large house at 48" w x38" tall x12" d.It's made to fit a barbie doll and i have about 40 hours into it.The bed room suit is made of maple and jacoba. The living room is made of cherry,the kitchen cabs are hickory,and the table is yellow pine.
    Now i still want to build a coffee table and some end tables to match the couch, but i'll do that for her birth day in feb.
    thanks for looking and i hope you all get what you need this year(happy new years)

    Very fine. The hours don't count for children or grands.
    The couch, alone, is proper braggin' material.

    That is a great gift Steve. I'm sure it will be appreciated, and with a girl sized closet like that, it will be appreciated.

    Wow Steve that is beautiful. I am sure it will see many hours of joyful play. But tell me, isn't Barbie a little bit worried about buying a house in this market?
