Mini table and chairs

Here is the next set of furniture that I made for Hagrid's hut. It is a little wooden table and chairs set. I used balsa wood for both and a brown sharpie to color them. The chairs are a little crooked and uneven but I think it gives them more character and fits my idea of what Hagrid's furniture would look like. I carved the base of the table and glued a circle of wood on top. As you will see in some of the pictures the table top is smaller than a nickle. I used the nickle to give you an idea of how small the chairs and table really are. Enjoy!

Mini fireplace

I know it's been awhile since my last post but I will hopefully be making up for it in the next couple of weeks. I've been working on the mini pieces of furniture that will go inside of Hagrid's hut. This first piece is the fireplace which connects to the chimney in the roof of the hut.

 In these next couple pictures I put the fireplace next to a quarter so you can see how small the piece is.

I made this out of balsa wood and then used acrylic paint to give it the stone look. The mantel on the fireplace was colored with a brown sharpie.
