Photos from the MiniCals Sideboard Workshop

The MiniCals miniature club hosted a workshop taught by Carlene Brown on February 16, 2018. The workshop participants created seasonal sideboards with their choice of graphics.

Carlene has been a dealer at the Good Sam Showcase of Miniatures and
offers both completed staged and unfinished sideboards and market stalls, along with accessories.

Thank you to Rhona Lee for the photos of the participants and completed prototypes.

The MiniCals will be offering more workshops and a flea market this Spring. See the N2 Region calendar for more info.

Photos from MiniCals Workshop: 1/4 scale ski lodge

On Saturday, April 23, 2016, MiniCals hosted a 1/4 scale ski lodge workshop, Part 1 of 2, at M & L Precision in Morgan Hill, CA. For Part 1 participants built, electrified, and chose their interior wall treatments.

M & L Precision, courtesy of Karen and Mark Laisure, is ideal for hosting the MiniCal workshops. The atmosphere for the MiniCals workshops is so conducive to working on miniatures that inevitably miniaturists come just to finish other projects, socialize and share. Lunch time drawings are always exciting. The small drawing gifts are wonderful artisan quality items donated by generous individuals. Mini table sales throughout the day are always welcome.

The Ski Lodge – Part 2 will be held on Saturday, May 21 at the same location. Participants will furnish their projects with laser cut pieces.
