New to woodworking, this is my first attempt at making something more complicated than a sanding block.
Unfortunately my photography skills are as bad as my woodworking ones, so the pics aren’t great.

Well, I bought myself a set of mini Mujingfang planes and decided I needed somewhere to store them.
The cupboard is made from some very sappy teak and walnut.

In a fit of intense stupidity I decided to use the planes as much as possible during construction. I’ve discovered that cutting rebates with a saw then cleaning them up with a 3” bullnose plane is very difficult – On the other hand those little chamfer planes were fantastic, so pretty much everything got a bevelled edge.

The plane in the last pic is just there to show how damn small these planes are.

Some things went well, others not so much, but overall I’m fairly happy with it.

-- If I say I'll fix something around the house I will, there is no use nagging about it every 6 months.
