I'm now on the look out for another cupboard, two suitable chairs and a rug. I'll also be having a go at making a light fitting which should be an interesting project as I've never made one of those before. Watch this space!

The Little Chamber
Work has started on the Little Chamber. I'd been looking for a piece of furniture I could adapt as a marquetry cabinet and this is what I've come up with. The top section originally had three drawers but by doing away with them and using the drawer bases supplied, I made a couple of doors - which, I hasten to add, do not open. I'm a beginner at putting together my own furniture and the thought of those tiny hinges and even tinier pins was just too much! A bit of marquetry and several coats of varnish created this.
