Johnkc: Looks great, nice bright colours, everything looks like it has smooth edges and shinny. I am sure the members would be interested in knowing what wood you used and what final finish was applied. For those that are wondering what plan set this is, it is "Penny's Little Pony Stable" and here is the link to it, http://toymakingplans.com/website/PlanSets/PennysPonyStable.html
Tkx for posting and sharing.

I used MDF (medium density fibreboard) in various thicknesses all edges were sealed with PVA glue diluted with water at 75% PVA 25% water when dry sanded,  3 coats of plasti-kote fast dry enamel (water based) were applied allowing to dry and sanded between coats then a couple of light coats of toy safe lacquer john

Johnkc: Thanks for the info. Good tip on diluted PVA with water. - Udie

I agree with John about preferring the look of toys natural although he did a fantastic job [biggrin]
