Tiny builds fewer than 25 pieces. Maybe a little more, if the build still feels “tiny” to me.
This Table Lamp is my smallest build yet in terms of piece count, and it’s likely to stay my smallest forever. Coming in at only 3 pieces, it’s hardly the most complicated MOC you’ll see.
I wanted to build something that would be at home on the End Table I built previously. It’s simple, but I like it!
I don’t remember building much LEGO furniture as a kid. I can’t say that it’s because I didn’t build many LEGO houses, because I did. I guess I just left my houses a little too empty in the furniture department. Granted, they were houses for wizards, pirates, and forestmen, but even a pirate needs a dining room table.
I’ve already posted a bookcase I made a while back. I was really happy with how it came out, and I guess that helped motivate me to make other furniture. Maybe I simply realized that if I’m ever going to fill a LEGO house with furniture, it’s going to take more than just bookcases. Without further ado, let me introduce me next venture into LEGO furniture: A sturdy little end table!
Today I have something a little different to show. It’s not entirely LEGO, and it’s not something other people will be able to really build themselves, but I wanted to post it all the same.
This is Harrington. Harrington is a giraffe eraser I found abandoned in a parking lot with his legs erased away. I know that most animal erasers are probably content being erased away to help you fix the mistakes you make, but I got the feeling this guy wanted to stick around. I figured he at least wanted to get out of that parking lot, so I picked him up and thought I could help the little guy out with some LEGO prosthetics.
LEGO made a two piece minifigure scale globe a while back, but I hadn’t seen a globe stand for it that I liked. I decided to make one myself with a paint roller brush piece.
The globe has only appeared a few sets so far. I think the globe is a neat little detailed part that many LEGO fans would want in a classically decorated study for a minifig, or a teacher’s classroom, or professor’s office. Since the globe stands (if any) in the sets the piece comes with aren’t to my liking, I’ve been coming back to the globe now and again trying to make a proper stand for it. Namely one that let’s the globe tilt instead of just spin around.
The Stone Lantern is a traditional piece of Japanese architecture, and thousands of them exist throughout the islands of Japan. They come in an extensive variety of shapes and sizes. Each kind of lantern has a name, and each part of their construction has a name. Originally a symbol of Buddhism, some have lit the way for travelers for over two thousand years.
I’m no expert on them. If you’d like to know more a quick internet search should be able to tell you far more than I can. I simply admire them, so I made one out of LEGO bricks.
My simplest build so far, it amounts to only five pieces.
Today I have a little Space Seat to share. 11 pieces large, it’s the perfect chair in which to comfortably weather the harsh nothingness of space. It can be used for other sitting applications as well, such as a desk chair. When using it outside of spacecraft I’d want to give it arm rests.
The reason the seat has no arm rests now is because I built it to be used in spaceships, where I would have controls for my crew to rest their arms on instead. I didn’t include any controls on this one as they’d be different from seat to seat, depending on what the sitter’s duties are.
