A slow weekend but the front door is near completion. The left photo shows the balsa wood and cogs stained and ready for painting, the right photo (inside of door) is unstained. Letterboxes have just been handmade and placed, the front into a cut recess, door knobs still to be made. You might be able to make out TWC in the larger top panel. Initially this was going to be set on glass but I thought the additional cogs surrounding the TWC would look balanced. The door will be painted green.

Due to a couple of days of low activity 'The Watchmaker' is now finished. I hope you found the photos of the early build stages useful. I will certainly be making more cog themed miniatures and 'out there' designs but then many people are making inspirational miniatures that are not your typical doll house ideas so it's about time I became a little more courageous with my designs! This was such fun to make and paint.
'The Watchmaker' is now available, please see my For Sale page for further details.
