Hi everyone!
This weekend was looong, in Russia we had 4 day holidays, so I had a chance to start a new project. I can’t really go into details right now, but I hope I’ll show the whole thing pretty soon.
I finally managed to buy MDF, a bit hard to buy, all the shops that sell it don’t work during weekends and are outside Moscow, but I found one. So I bought 6mm and 10mm sheets (2m X 3m). I’m going to use them for roomboxes and maybe one more dollshouse.
I started with the parquet – and that’s when I loved my table saw. It’s so easy to cut veneer with it! We’ve found a way to make some sort of jig to cut it evenly (if you’re interested I can show you the whole process). As a result, it was possible to cut such little pieces

And these:

After that I started working on a parquet, it’s not sanded yet of course, not finished. At this point this is how it looks:

Очередные находки

Author: Виктория, February 8, 2010 в Worth Seeing

So I had some pine wooden strips that I didn’t like and I was wrong! Because later I found out it was not pine but beech wood. So we bought several more, our kitten loved them.

I also found a good place in Moscow to buy basswood, they are cut and polished to the size. Guess it’s time to try some carving.

Recently I found pretty good store near my house, they sell a lot of router bits for Dremel and Proxxon, and also they sell some miniature hardware, which is a a bit out of scale for mini stuff, but sometimes it’d fit. And the price is good!
