Or read this in Russian

I haven’t posted anything for a week – my hubby and I caught a flu, not N1H1 fortunately, so I couldn’t do anything but staying in bed. Sadly,I didn’t finish windows. Just the table (sorry for the pictures):

The legs are made of pinewood, the rest is oak. My husband was helping me, he became interested in miniature more lately. So we started from the simple things. The only problem was to fix the legs – somehow it’s almost impossible to find four-sided glue jig in Moscow! Maybe we are looking at the wrong stores.
So, we thought of another way to glue the legs and stringers (do I use the right term?).  Tricky trick:

     We glued both sides of the legs to the pattern, so it would be perfect right angle. Then you glue the stringers and take off the paper on the upper side. I was surprised but it worked.
     The second update – I changed the layout of the blog, so if something not working, drop me a line. I’m quite happy with the new look of my blog, I used the picture from the old album “Motifs de’l architecture  russo”.
      Besides, I have my first tutorial published on the Russian site dedicated to dolls and dollhouse miniatures. I was offered to make the article about mini lathe so I was happy to share some experience. Especially, when this kind of hobby – miniatures – is not popular in Russia, and it’s considered more like hobby for kids.
So here it is (Warning it’s all in Russian:)). I hope to write something else to find more people, passionate about miniatures.
