My first successful woodworking project, entirely made with hand tools!

Wood was prepared with a japanese plane, cut with japanese saws; joints cut and chiseled by hand, glass was cut by hand, even the glue I made myself from glutinous rice!

It's not perfect but I learned a ton and am extremely happy with it, given that it's my first project 😊

Not sure about the wood, I think it's plum. It was two pieces of european fruit tree scrap wood.


Here's another picture to give a better idea of how it was constructed

And it took me very long to make it, easily more than 20h of working time, spread over a week or more 😅

@unicorn Congratulations on a great first project. I would love to see pictures of the tools.
