awesomee room ! How did you do the door handls?

Cheers.

The handle itself is made from two pieces of wooden dowel superglued together. I slightly flattened the actual handle piece so that it would stick properly. Once dry I shaped with a scalpel and sand paper. I then made the plate from a hobby stick...one of those giant lolly sticks. Drilled a hole and superglued it together.

Hope this helps

All coming together so well Chris!
Always great to see works in progress shots.
I invariably forget to take them and then regret it later.

Building from scratch I think..as I cant seem to find anything that resembles the ideas that I have in my head.

Oh can any of us ever build the ideas we have in our heads exactly?
Don't know about anyone else but my creations always manage to fall somewhat short of what I envisaged. No No No

Then it takes much longer to make than I had planned, and looks far less epic than I had visualized, and I lose interest and just want it gone! So after sitting around for months, in to the trash it goes!

Been building a desk this week.  Due to the fact that I over engineer everything I build it weighs almost  as much as a real desk lol!
Ran out of crafting wood so I had to finish it with what I had left as the DIY stores are all shut.

That desk is amazing Chris! cheers

Actual opening drawers! What a show off! Rolling Eyes

It's one of the best 1/6th desks I've seen and definitely deserves a more impressive chair behind it!

The shut-downs are affecting our hobby? THIS HAS GONE TOO FAR!!! Razz

Nice looking desk! I like the detailing on the side that faces in to the office.

Yes! Great work Chris, but it's now plainly obvious that the troops have stolen (and re-purposed!  Shocked ) all the pages out of those books and filled 'em up with corrugated cardboard, hoping Rufus wouldn't notice!
