|Cutting pieces for creating the stool.|
Still navigating and making some purchases. I bought some minis from the Dolls House Emporium and they arrived fairly quickly. The objects are a bit big but I can adjust as usual to fit where I need them. I did find a great handled bucket that will be the coal bucket (since I just couldn’t find a smaller version in the right scale of a real coal bucket...)
Also, I have been looking at lots of sites and pictures of Japan or other miniatures. I came across these cute little stools with woven seats. So, of course, I put more time in and found how to actually weave this seat. On this site, there are lots of explanations on how to weave chair seats. I went back and forth whether or not I wanted to use kitchen string or cotton crochet thread. I figured in the long run the string was best since it’s stronger and easier to weave. I think it looks very nice in the kitchen.
|Weaving test. I ended up having to let the glue set up overnite as the weaving was distorting the legs.|
|Weaving done. Just had to add additional bottom rungs.|
|Stool in the kitchen. I think it's very cute.|
