Ok, this guy is very tiny. Well, tiny for ME. I'm not one of those amazing artists that deals in 1:24 or 1:48 scale or insanity like THAT.

The drawers do open, although I have no idea what on earth I might find that would be tiny enough to be held in them, but you never know, I guess.

 That is incredible!  It's awesome that you went the extra mile and made them all open. Very, very cool and I am sure you will run across things to put in it.  Wink

Amazingly tiny!  lovely job.
I do 1" scale, but rarely use wood if cardstock will do, so I'm especially impressed with your teeny woodworking skills.

Could I make one teeny suggestion?  In real life size, the top of furniture usually sits on top of the sides, instead of between them.  It would make your pieces more believable.

Absolutely amazing! I love that you've repurposed sewing notions for drawer pulls, it is so funny because I just used a skirt hook part for a picture hanger today, lol. We are such clever gals Smiley.
It's crazy that the drawers open! Would you post a pic with it alongside a ruler for scale? If you're interested in accessories of the right size I have an absolutely ginormous collection of minis in my computer files, I could take a look-see for something awesome enough to pair with that wicked set of drawers.

steiconi I had to look over the pictures a bit to see what you meant, it's probably a good sign that a casual viewer didn't notice that detail. But once I saw it I knew exactly what you were talking about. Good suggestion that I'll file away for that mini piece of furniture I'm planning, thanks!

Yes, you are right, of course!  I'll have to keep that in mind for future endeavors. I suppose I could create a veneer out of paper, maybe wood, to cover the tops, which might help.

Thank you for all your kind words, guys! And CLM, the drawers measure 1/4 inch x 1/4 inch x 1/2 inch. I'd love your help with this!  It's going into a late 1800's laboratory, if that helps.  Grin

Seeds? Herbs to fill the drawers?
Love it.

I happen to have this pic of the unpainted drawers. They are on my cutting mat, which is graphed off by the quarter inch, one inch measure is indicated by the bolder lines on the board.
