Bamboo Furniture

I haven't finished the papier mache book project yet, just the finishing touches to add to it.  While I think about that I looked in an old Dolls House World magazine, September 2002, and saw a wonderful little scene project that I just had to try immediately!  It has a 'bamboo' cabinet and plant stand with the instructions on how to make them.  Here's my version of the cabinet...
The bottom shelf was a bit fiddly to get in place, it looks a bit out to me but not enough to make much difference.  I won't be painting it as I like it as it is.
I'm using my new glue and it is working much better than my usual PVA craft glue, it grabs quicker and maintains a bit of maneuverability before drying.  It is 'api's Crafter's Pick The Ultimate'.  It says it is a water based superglue and it dries clear.


  1. Wow! That's pretty impressive. I don't think I would ever attempt to make anything that small.

  2. Congrats for your project. It look very interesting and unique. So many creation with bamboo
