Discussion of personal LEGO Castle creations

Hello everyone !

It's been a while that I posted here on CC, but I'm still reading the forums and enjoying everyone's creations. :D

I'm also still building; nothing really big, though.
But sometimes it's just fun to make some small and tiny things, like these tables I made using some special elements from BL:

I'll update the gallery with some more types of furniture soon !

Very nice tables, Martin! I especially like the small one and the really long one (wish I could see it better though). The one with the goblets is also very nice.

Awesome! The really long one looks nice, I can't wait for a bigger pic. I can tell how all of them are made except for the long one(can't see it, so I can't be blamed... ok I can, but please don't :wink: ) and the smallest one. The little one has me stumped. Wanna tell me how you did it?
Edit: I figured it out! The legs are those funky half "X" pieces with 1x1 studs on top! Go me! :lol:

I continue to maintain that you're one of the master builders of minifigs and small creations -- which can be just as challenging as bigger MOCs, I think.

These are great little tables!

Indeed! I love seeing your "small" creations, marakoeschtra, far more inspiring than the castles I´ve made :P

My favourite of these tables is probably the low one to the right, would never have thought of that.

These are some great tables! I really like the lower right-hand one. Great design! I really do hope to see more creations for you here soon.

These are great and clever. Very good job. I particularly fancy the smallest one.

I love how you used the goblets as table legs. Very nice. The other tables are nice too, although I can't for the life of me figure out how you did the legs on the shortest one.

When I first saw this, I thought that it was actually miniature wooden furniture. The way that this was constructed makes it the highest calibre of LEGO furniture that I have ever seen.

I always love your stuff, this furniture is no exception! The nice part useage, the browness, but especially the clean simplicity are what really stand out to me about these. Well done as usual!

This furniture is absolutely great. Because of your work. I have now separated all my browns (and reddish brown) into on collection, so as to start making miniature furniture for my minifigs. Until today, I was only ever interested in the outside of the buildings. But now things have changed.

Thank you for sharing your awesome talents with us.

Thanks for your replies ! :D I'm glad you all like my furniture designs so far.

I made a bunch of cupboards, and also a few more tables.
