The Sink and Stove set were built for a nephew and niece, and I endeavoured to keep it all in wood (except for a couple of screws in the handles and hinges). Even the sink is fully wood (made from 19mm pine, laminated together) I designed it on paper, then refined it in AutoCAD, before building it in one weekend. The doors have 3D routered designs, and are all rail & stile w raised panels. It was left unfinished so the parents could choose to leave it, varnish it, stain, or paint.
I really enjoy making kids furniture - imagining them playing with the toy while you are building it really connects you to the project and why you are really doing it. It also helps inspire you to take details to that next level, imagining them playing with the toy and its features.
"I live in NJ, and wish there was a physical store near where I live. My experience with rockler.com is second to none. Not only are your products first rate, but customer service/product support is exceptional. I've called several times, and never received someone on the other end of the phone who was anything but extremely helpful, patient, and friendly. The biggest compliment I can give is that I TRUST Rockler for all my woodworking needs. The only other store I can say that about is LL Bean. My wood working friends in western NJ love Rockler. Keep on keepin' on - and get a store here in Jersey!!" -
