    Doll size 4 poster bed

    I'm making a pint sized version in walnut of a bed I made about 4-5 years ago for our granddaughter. Progress shots so far. Got the plan free from shopsmith site, reduced it till the bed post was 1.5" square. To fit a 18" doll. Rails will be 22" long. It's 14" wide. Last pic is the full size version I made .

    Yes she is spoiled. No, but it did fool the eye. I kept thinking the headboard wasn't even. I had it 8" high, but the arch didn't look right so added a few more inches to it. It's hard to get it sized right. It's turning into a queen size bed, enough for two dolls. I probably will have to make up a foam mattress and a box spring for it too!

    Yikes! That looks like 1/4 scale!

    You sure have one lucky granddaughter, and she has one lucky doll!

    Beautiful Bryan.

    Looks like it got a little "sprinkled on" during that last picture.

    I am sure this will be treasured for generations to come.

    Thanks everyone! Once I have it together, I am going to try and make a mattress and box foundation for it. I'm going to have to sharpen my sewing machine skills!
