The Transport Cafe

Inspiration: Vintage Routemaster bus Matchbox toy picked up at Trash & Treasure for 50 cents. Added: Amazing Miniatures' coffee table (part of our swap), turned on its side and used as a planter box.

Time taken: Fifteen minutes.

Those look like the chrome chairs I have!

They are: and I forgot to mention it's a "Made in Taiwan" sticker on them :-)

I so want to see a full room on this one. So cute!

Now there's a challenge, especially as I only have one of the tables and one planter box.

Let me think about it and see if inspiration strikes...

Thank you very much :)
I've been looking for harder woods to work with but here in Portugal it's impossible to find basswood or jelutong, balsa wood is really the easiest one to find in mini shops. But I'll keep looking for an alternative and I'll try to find a proper saw I can afford to work with harder woods.
Thank you for the tip, tips are always very welcomed. :)
