American Girl Doll Horse Stable

Submitted by jmhawk1 on Mon, 04/03/2017 - 20:33

This was my first project with my daughter. After a divorce, I wanted something fun to do with my daughter-something where she would learn, have fun, and see a project from start to finish.

I did a lot of pre-cutting and prepping, but she did some cutting with a handsaw and mitre box, drilled holes with the Kreg jig, stained, used the nail gun, and glued. I installed the shingles, and touch up staining, but she did a lot of work for this project!

Since then, we have built a collapsible corral (fence) for her three horses, and next is the farmhouse bed for her doll!

Thank you for the great instructions, my daughter thinks I'm the greatest person on earth because of these projects!

Estimated Cost
I bought the Kreg jig, so my cost was a lot higher, but less than $75 prior to the purchase of Kreg jig (additional $40 with clamp).
Estimated Time Investment
Weekend Project (10-20 Hours)
Finish Used
Honey maple and dark maple
