    Well I finally got around to getting some pictures of a couple of things I made for my daughter for Christmas. Here is a doll house I made and my wife painted for her.

    I had to due glue ups in stages so waiting for drying time made it seem longer than it was. Cutting and gluing on the wooden shingles took the longest. I have about 5 hours in just that. Overall start to finish about 15-18hrs but I was not in no big rush so it could have been done quicker. My daughter loves it and it gets a lot of play time. She saves her allowance each week to buy more furnishings.

    Very :cool2: Roger! I would've loved to have had one just like that when I was a l'il girl, it's even my favorite color :big_smile:. Tell your wife she did a lovely job with the painting (although I'm sure she already knows that :wink:). You really make some neat things buddy. It's also great that your daughter saves her allowance to buy more furniture for it. Good practice to get into for later on, when she has to buy the full size stuff!

    Roger, you are the kind of dad every little one should have. You did a fantastic job on that doll house. I put one together in a kit package several years ago for a customer and I can tell you it took me way longer than it did you, they are really tough to construct. You are right about the shingles, they were time consuming to say the least. Great job buddy and your wife did an excellent job also. You two make a great team.

    Roger, nice job. I'm sure your daughter and even her daughter will enjoy playing dolls with that.

    Roger, that's truly some excellent work! Where did you find those little bathroom fixtures?
