Here's How
  • Cut 6 x 6 to desired heights for buildings.
  • Cut 2 x 2 to desired lengths for chimneys.
  • Cut the roofs and chimneys on a compound saw, set at a 45° angle.
  • Cut doorways to desired heights and widths by making repetitive cuts on the table saw.
  • Cut metal roofs with 1" extra on all sides, and then bend 1/2" under on all edges.
  • Bend the middle of the roof over a sharp edge.
  • Finish with spray chalky paint and spray wax. Either spray the houses with colour and sand back to reveal wood, or spray with two colours and sand back to reveal first colour.
  • Choose the spray wax to give a soft, worn look. Natural wax enhances the colour, the dark wax gives it an aged, antique look.
  • Attach roofs with construction adhesive and attach chimneys with finishing nails.
