Published between 1976 and 1996, The Scale Cabinetmaker (TSC) set the standard for plans, patterns, and tool and technique instructions for the aspiring and experienced miniaturist.
Despite being 30 plus years removed from the genesis of TSC, the content is still as relevant and as useful as it was when it was first published. All plans and patterns in TSC are given in full dimension and the projects are assumed to be 1/12th scale, unless otherwise noted.
TSC provides miniature enthusiasts with insights and ideas that can be used in a multitude of applications. It was, and remains, the intent of TSC to be a tool for inspiration, encouraging those who work with miniatures to try new ideas, build their confidence, and expand their skills in order to tackle increasingly complex projects.
