Description

ASSEMBLY INSTRUCTIONS

First jiggle the pieces loose slightly. You can treat plywood sets as any
wooden object: paint, vax, varnish… I usually use acrylic paints.. Assemble the cupboard in the dollhouse first without glue to identify where glue is needed. You need a universal glue for assembly (eg a special plaster). You can treat the cupboard like a wooden object: varnish, wax, paint … I recommend painting after assembly. However, if you want to keep the shelves in wood color, you should install them when the parts have already been painted and the cupboard has been assembled at the stage that the shelves need to be installed.

Hinge with fabric hinges (see vignette pictures):

1. Glue the hinge pieces inside the side walls and allow the glue to dry before adding <- glue to the entire outer edge of the hinge piece.

2. Add glue to the outer edge of the hinge piece.

3. Place the door piece against the adhesive surface in the middle of the cabinet and on the edge of the side

4. Turn the rest of the hinge to the side of the door leaf and press the hinge firmly. Squeeze a moment. Wipe off the excess glue immediately.

You can glue a wooden bead to the floor of the cabinet, for example, as a door stopper.

We manufacture our products in our workshop in Kangasala. We also make designs, illustrations and experimental versions of the products such as laser-cut plywood products,  custom-made works in our own workshop. For everything printed (on fabric or paper) we have reliable partners near us: Eräsalo printing house in Tampere and Printscorpio in Aitolahti. We have a selection of houses and furniture in the scales 1/12, 1/18 and 1/24 also 1/48 and 1/6.

Our machines roll on with green electricity. The workshop is located in Ecovillage in Kangasala, where we follow a number of nature-saving principles.

Philosophy

Most of our products are useful (utility artickles). Their graphics and text are made with heart. The purpose is to awaken small and big smiles and thoughts. Our idea is to offer accessories for those who want to enjoy the DIY, the journey to the conclusion and influence the result. We do not sell finished goods but things to do and the joy of crafting.

– Save your head, save your day – Use your imagination and hands!

Availability

Online shop is always open. From the workshop (Muurahaispolku 1, 36200 Kangasala) you can also get the products but first contact Anu: 050 376 5848 or gepetto@gepetto.fi. Resellers you can see on our website. A good idea is to ask in advance, not everyone has the full selection. In addition, I visit several dollhouse fairs and various handicraft fairs around Finland and also the Sy-Craft festival in Älvsjö / Stockholm and Miniature fairs (Miniature Society Stockholm) whenever possible.
