Talk about the home of music: Resourceful mum carves doll's house INSIDE a guitar as a gift for her daughter|
This room should have the perfect acoustics.
Miniatures artist Lorraine Robinson, originally from Mansfield, carved a doll's house into a guitar using incredible attention to detail.
The 49-year-old, who now lives in Australia, used her own prized instrument for the intricate project, as a special present for her daughter Cathryn.
'I couldn't see her keeping a plain old room box, and wanted it to be unusual,' said Ms Robinson.
'So I thought of many ideas that would incorporate her passions.
'I wanted to give her a gift that she would cherish and would be specific to her.
'This guitar was my first guitar and I knew she would recognise it because ofthe stress fracture that runs down the top of the body on the front left-hand side.
'Cathryn spotted this straight away and hugged me even more knowing full well what I had done.'
The two-floor room has exquisite detailing with tiny pencils visible on a table along with cupboards, stairs and other furniture.
Ms Robinson spent about two weeks on the guitar dwelling, working between eight and 10 hours a day.
She said it had been daunting at first to saw into her prized guitar, although she soon began to enjoy the challenge.
