Dollhouse Making: Easy Wood Product To Build Structure

I'm always looking for products that will make your dollhouse construction easier. Not everyone wants to invest in wood cutting machines. So I found a product that's pretty easy to cut with even a craft knife! And it's cheap too.
 This is called Tempered Hardboard. I bought mine at Home Depot for $5 a sheet. The sheets are 2' x 4' and 1/8" thick. I usually need 2 sheets per project.
The material is a composite. But it does not warp with moisture. So it's perfect for paint, glue, plaster or concrete application. One side is smooth and the other is rough.
You can use a craft knife or a box cutter. Just score both sides for a neat and clean cut. Sanding is a breeze too.
The end result is a dollhouse that is just as strong as if you had used hardwood.  So if you can't get your hands on a saw try this stuff out. I think you will be very surprised with the result.
