Shelving Complete

Today I got the remainder of the shelving done for my bookstore (except for a magazine stand I plan on building).

I am really happy with the way it's coming together. The little ceramic vases were bought years ago at a pottery festival. Maybe miniatures were always in my blood! They were hand-turned on a pottery wheel. I wish I remembered the artist's name.

Look! The first customer! Too bad the store is empty. I guess he'll have to stick around for awhile! I think I'll call him Buster. (The little ceramic puppy was my grandmothers. I think it's from the 50's?)


  1. I really like your shelving..they look great!

  2. It's coming along well, you have loads of books to make, good luck

  3. ¡Que maravilla de estanterias! Ahora se presenta otro gran trabajo que es llenarlas.

  4. Thank you! Yep, it's going to take lots of books to fill those shelves.

  5. Ooo, I really like that shelf in the first (completed) photo, with the open sides - spiffy! :)

  6. These shelvings are really very very well made. I thought the same when I saw how you made that door. You must be quite experienced ! Your work is really neat and precise :).

  7. Actually the shelves were mostly pre-made as part of the kit I bought from RGT. I just trimmed them to how I wanted them.

    Not experienced at all-lol! This is my first miniature! Thanks for the kind words though :)
