Plans

by brae  

A few years ago, I saw a fabulous drafting table on Recréation Miniature.  I put it on the someday to try list.  :D  I loved that it was a working, adjustable table.  Another fine example is the table from Boutique Miniatures.  I own two of the adjustable stools from this shop.  I put the table on my wish list as a splurge in case I didn't get around to making one.

Not too long ago, Mike Adamson was downsizing a few miniatures he didn't intend to use, and the drafting table from Boutique Miniatures was one of those items.  I was lucky enough to nab it.  :D  You must see the beautiful work that Mike does as well.  His exacting replications for kitchens, living rooms and other modern settings are top notch!

The table is a superb reproduction.

There are tiny ringed pins to adjust the table from flat to angled.

There was another stool in the set, so now I have three.  The tops actually adjust up and down.

I've printed out a Beebe Windmill technical drawing for today's scene, though I recolored it in PhotoShop.

Mike sent me one of his marvelous paintings as well.  :]

Lamp from Ray Storey, bowl of nuts from Hartland Miniatures, modern shelf from Debbie Ohm, rug from Iklectic Kollectibles, horse bust from Art Forge.  I made the file folders.

Exquisite! I’ve given thought to splurging on a Boutique item. I. Have splurged on Mike’s items…fantastic.

A drafting table has been on my ‘to do’ list forever too but the brass pieces have prevented me making it since they need to be either etched or very carefully cut out. Maybe I should just buy one but at over £300…wow. It does look gorgeous though :0)

I’m tired already. You do more in a day than I do in a week.

The table and chairs are just priceless.

A Lovely drafting table and the adjustable stools are Fabulous!
I’ve enjoyed seeing the blueprint of the windmill project laid out across the table and taped in place. Now it only needs a T square and oh yes- a mechanical pencil! :D

Ohh I remember when I saw that drafting table appear on Etsy… so happy you were able to pick it up! I too have three of the stools and the craftsmanship is outstanding. Love the way they look as a set with the drafting table but the Watson Mill plans make the scene!
