Watson Mill - Vintage Lundby and pulleys

by brae  

I've been mainly working on books behind the scenes, though no more are fully assembled beyond what I did last time.  I've been doing batches of each part of the process in the evenings so I can then have a few marathon assembly sessions. :D I borrowed a whole bunch of movies I've already seen from the library for the task.

In the meantime, I also de-cluttered my mini stash and searched for items to add to the mill.  I ran across this vintage Lundby piece I picked up a few years ago.

Being a slightly smaller scale, it has never worked well in any build to date.  The mill, however, provides a perfect spot for it.  So, I think the trunk is out and the cabinet is in.  I was planning to use the trunk elsewhere besides.

Its hinge pins show on the top surface, but I can cover that well enough with a runner.  And, this would provide a surface for displaying items whereas the trunk would have been uncluttered to show it opens.

I also received the model ship single sheave blocks I had ordered from the UK from Maritime Models.  Yep, they actually work.  These will be perfect for my dumbwaiter pulley system.  :]  So wee.

At the 3 Blind Mice show, they always have a tray of inexpensive little items to choose from with your entry fee.  I thought this was perfect for Gustav.  :D  Always so much to do!

Ever feel like you're being watched?  hmmph.

I like the tiny hardware and I really like the vintage Lundby piece. Such a funny cat! If only he had thumbs, he could help you make books.

I had the Lisa dollhouse when I was a child. :yes: It could use both Lundby and Lisa furnishings. Thanks for the clarification on which brand this belonged to.

I love that you are making the dumbwaiter work with the aid of the pulleys, which will add yet another interesting layer to this cute little mill!
