What kind of wood do you use to make a dolls house?
Luan plywood, sometimes referred to as lauan, is often the material used for less-expensive dollhouse kits. It is an easily worked material but requires more finishing work than some other choices. In kits, this plywood is often die-cut and assembled using tab-and-slot construction methods rather than nails or screws.
