Dollhouse Miniature Door

Watch the video here.

This week we are going to be making a door that I will be needing for an upcoming project. The door I need for this is non-working so that is what I am making today. This door could be made to be working by making just a few changes which I talked about in the video.

I only finished the front of my door since that is all that will be seen once I install it in my project, you can choose to finish both sides of your door or just the front depending on how you are going to use yours.

For the door we need the following pieces of wood:

From 1/16” wood:
4 @ ½” by 6 ½”
1 @ ½” by 3 ¼”
2 @ ½” by 2
1 @ 2 ½” by 3 ¼”

From Jumbo craftstick (or 1/16” by ¾” stripwood)
6 @ 1 ½”

From skinny sticks (or 1/16” by ¼” stripwood)
1 @ 2 ½”
2 @ 3”

1 piece of plexiglass or clear plastic from packaging
1 @ 2” by 2 ¾”

For the door frame:

From 1/16” by ¼” strip wood
2 pieces the height of the door (sides)
1 piece the width of the door + the side pieces (top)

From a regular craftstick
1 piece the same length as the top piece.

This project is really easy if you pay attention to how I laid out the pieces. Be sure to measure very carefully! That is really the key to success on this project. I did try to make all the dimensions easy to measure. Dry fit all pieces before you glue also and make adjustments as needed.
