After many years of planning and teaching workshops for miniature groups both locally and at international shows, there has been a growing interest from those who want to work on projects independently, at their own pace and in the comfort of their own homes.

I can now introduce  the start of a range of workshop projects that can be made at home, aimed at those with a reasonable ability and some experience or understanding.

For each project you will receive a comprehensive package of timber and materials, taking much of the hard work out of creating your own miniature furniture, but without removing the need for your own skilful shaping and accurate assembly.

Each pack includes:

- A detailed booklet following every stage of the project;

- Scale drawings;

- Prepared cutting list of timber and parts;

- Sundries needed to complete the piece;

- Finishing materials (subject to postal restrictions)

The first available projects are:

- Chippendale dining chair kit. CCH1 Price £34.99 + postage


- Chippendale dining armchair / carver kit. CACH1 Price £39.99 + postage


- George III pedestal dining table,  either D-end or rectangular rounded corner top with two sizes for either 6 or 8 chairs.

Price (for all options)  £74.99 + postage

All kits are 1/12th scale.Miniatures.
