My new best friend is balsa wood, it may not be fit for a classic piece of Georgian architecture but it is working a treat for me at the moment. I love that I can just pick up all shapes and sizes from my local Hobbycraft, that it is so easy to cut, sand and glue, but mostly cos I end up with lots of off-cuts that I can make furniture with. Then they are really free - aren't they?!
Here are my first attempts at making pieces, as they are for the potting area of my witch's house they are supposed to look rustic - which is just as well I hear you cry! Made from bits of balsa and pieces of bannister that I did not use in my house kit. I am well chuffed.
Then while I was basking in my glory I came across this site My Hand Made Hobbit House and went to bed dreaming of underground houses. Have a peek it is absolutely awesome.
