While the dollhouse miniature armoire case is setting up, measure and cut the parts for the doors. The doors will need to be cut from 1 1/2 inch stock, or cut from a length of 3 inch stock sawn to length along the grain. I cut my doors from a piece of 3 inch by 1/16 inch basswood, cutting a three inch section to the length of the inside measurements of the case (the same length as the piece for the back) and cutting the strip into two, 1 1/2 inch wide sections.
When the miniature doors and the dollhouse armoire frame with the shelves are dry, test fit the doors into the front of the armoire or cupboard. You should allow a thin space (at least 1/32 inch) for the hinged edge of the door, between the door and the frame. If the doors fit too tightly to allow for any space for the hinge, sand them carefully with the sanding block.
The next step in building the dolls house armoire or cupboard is to glue on an overhanging top and base to cover the hinge pins and hold them in place in the frame. The top and bottom can also add some design detail to the armoire. If you prefer, you can glue cornice molding in dolls house scale to the top and base of the cupboard. Try a few different methods to produce cupboards with different styles.
