This is just a quick post that may help anyone wanting to make IKEA style furniture. Recently, I finished a swap piece for the lovely Tam Toum She wanted the Ikea Stockholm Cabinet reproduced in 12th scale. After stalking my local IKEA store for an hour armed with a measuring tape, the staff persuaded me to leave ha! I'm one of those people who needs to know the far end of a fart before I can make anything. I want to open/close/disassemble/poke and prod something so that I know how the 1:1 scale version is put together. This may be old news for most, but IKEA have a site listing the assembly instructions for all of their furniture.
Once you have the overall size, you can pretty much gauge the size of each component. Plus it saves being escorted off the premises by their burly yet charming staff ;0) *kidding*
Anyway, this is the cabinet I made for Tam Toum
I'm sure she will post pictures of the other items I sent her via her blog Miniature Stuff, when she's completed her cool new project =0)
Til next time
