More micros

More micros

I've got a few more micro furniture pieces to share. I went kind of crazy and built some more stuff the last couple days after work. I learned how to braze as well. Brazing is kind of between soldering and welding. You use a torch to heat the steel and melt a filler in between. It's pretty awesome, but tedious and you have to be careful, this stuff gets HOT. You can read more here. This chair is inspired by a Paul McCobb chair that I saw in the Design*Sponge book . (I highly recommend this book btw, it's full of great homes and you can never have too many interior design books). I really liked the way she covered the seat in plaid. I LOVE plaid everything. I used veneer pieces of teak for the back, glulam'ed into shape. I want to make a similar full-sized version of this chair. Soon.... I made a couple of round tables out of Iroko using two different sized holesaws. The larger one is a coffee table with three wire hairpin legs. The smaller one is a tri-pod side table. This scrapwood bench is made just as I make the real ones. Tiny pieces of scrap wood glued together on a steel base. I also made a micro version of my surfboard table. I painted the top white this time, but other than that it's built the same way. Although I still have alot of more stuff to build for the dollhouse, I don't think I'll need more than one coffee table. Maybe I'll put some of these up on etsy? I don't really know what to even charge for this stuff. Roxy has been buying little accessories too. Check out the real cowhide rug and industrial desk lamp. The eames chair was a gift from a friend about a year ago, perfect scale!

Yes, you should totally sell them! I would look how much other mini funiture costs, and how much time you used to make them (or maybe, how much time it would take you to make a second or third one) and how much you normally earn per hour when you sell your other funiture and then price somewhere in between.

There are lots of people who sell miniatures on etsy; check out their pricing structure. But please don’t make them so expensive that us “regular folks” can’t afford them. Please, please make more and put them on sale.

Hi I’m Tyla from http://obscurecreationsbytyla.blogspot.com/

Love your blog – very specific and inspiring.

Most people don’t understand how much time these projects take so take the begging for low prices as a compliment not an indictment…Keep up the good work!

You’re a natural, Logan! A background making rad human scale furniture always helps! I Love your scrapwood benches in both scales. :)

Good luck making the etsy leap. There are some amazing miniature artists on there, and I wholeheartedly agree with the people encouraging you to charge what you’re really worth. This is a very specialized skill, and a lot of people just don’t think about the hours of r&d + labor + supplies that go into each handcrafted ooak piece, not to mention the huge commitment to selling, online, which includes photographing, writing descriptions, listing fees, marketing, and shipping, just to scratch the surface!

The furniture might be small, but the undertaking is huge! Wishing you lots of success with your kickass work! :)
