I built the stage deck today out of two pieces of an old Ikea butcher block table top. I’ve used that table top for quite a few things – synthesizer stand, drum box easel and now the stage.
I also have the curtain rod done. The upright parts are the last of some 1/2 inch iron pipe I had laying around and a piece of aluminum from an old ham radio antenna.
I even started building a park bench where up to two puppets can sit at any one time.
I just love building these miniatures. The thought process of thinking in scale is way more fun that I had ever imagined.
