Tutorial: 1/12 Scale Miniature Dorm Chair

I featured this chair on my blog a few months ago when I started this project, but here’s a full tutorial for it!

It’s a bit fiddly to put together, so I’m not sure if this is the best order to go about it. I used little tiny 2-inch spring clamps (like these) to hold it together as I was gluing. With those, they went together quite easily, especially since it was the first miniature thing I ever made :-)

What you will need:

  • 1/8″ wood (I used cherry from Ocooch Hardwoods)
  • Wood glue and a way to apply tiny amounts of it (I use toothpicks and a glue syringe)
  • A laser cutter or another way to precisely cut small curvy shapes out of wood
