Bill Robertson builds miniatures, from tables, chairs, cake stands, and stoves to complete houses, as well as the tools with which to build these things, most often to 1/12 scale. All are meticulously researched and exquisitely crafted with fully functioning mechanical parts.
Let that sink in a moment while pondering the toolbox below, with Robertson’s fingers and a pencil tip for scale.
Given how little space Robertson’s creations require, you might imagine his workshop to be sized proportionately, albeit with some allowance for the full-scale craftsman who has to work there. As it happens, Bill’s shop, located in the basement of his 1914 home in Kansas City, is surprisingly large: 600 square feet.
