Make a Fairy Door to let the Little People in and out! 

My daughter loves this. One day we were at the Renaissance Festival and saw these for sale. Of course, I said, "I can do that!


1/2" Plywood
1/8" Plywood
Wooden furniture button
Reflective scrapbook paper or foil
Wood glue
Mineral Spirits

Scroll Saw

Step 1: Door & Frame

Picture of Door & Frame
First, draw your door and frame on the 1/2" plywood and cut out both. Use the router to round off the edges. 

Note: If your door cuts are too tight, i.e. your blade is too thin, it will cause the door to stick later. Make sure there's clearance.

Once the edges are rounded, cut your door from the jamb. Be careful and make a very straight cut.

That's a really nice project, but I'm afraid I had to chuckle at this bit:

Fairies aren't supposed to be scary, are they?

When I know a project isn't technically scary, I'll sometimes sneak up behind my wife and pop a paper bag to make up for it. ;)
