This is really neat Brae! I often see decal items at the hobby shop and never really knew how they worked. I love the design you made for the top. It’s very delicate and almost looks hand-painted.

Lovely Minis.. Barbara has great style!. :)

I think your small side cabinet may be a small pleasures kit called the Duncan Phyfe chest. This link to ebay has the dimensions on the front of the kit so you should be able to easily tell if it is. I have one of these kits (yet to be made) and it’s a lovely piece.

See, this is why I like to read your blog. I would never think to line up the legs of furniture I was building on graph paper to make sure it is straight and square. Great tip and wonderful result on the table. :D

Oh it turned out so lovely! The delicate design on the table top, and the color of the chairs and the legs, it just comes together perfectly!

I agree with you, you have a winner I love how the table top turned out I never would have thought to use a decal.

Thanks so much for the info on Jim. :yes: It’s a great feeling to be connected to past miniaturists.

Hi Brae
I do believe that Kat is correct about the signature being Jim Cauldwell (sp?). Assuming that it is; he passed away many years ago but was a talented and well respected miniature furniture maker here in southern British Columbia. He and his wife Sharon were members of the Miniature Club of British Columbia- M.C.B.C- at the same time that I was, back in the 80’s the 90’s so I knew both of them. and I can personally attest to the fact that Jim LOVED red mahogany. :))
My friend Fatima is the current M.C.B.C club president, and may have more info in the club archives, however there are original member who are still active in the club and whom I’m sure could provide additional information should you require it.

Your new additions are all Perfect Brae, and will make themselves right at home in their new surrounding, yet I can’t help but marvel at what a very SMALL WORLD it is after all.

Your work is always so inspiring. And motivating - I haven’t had a chance to work on my house for a couple of months and I’m itching to get back to it.

Love to happy accidents! The tabletop pattern and luster is wonderful, and the height looks perfect!

Gorgeous! I love how it looks and I really like the slightly imperfect finish to the table. That makes it more real in my mind than something that looks straight out of the showroom.
