You can do it but you need to have a great deal
of patience, fine tools and sharpening skills. Somebody
who already has mad skills and experience could do
it with less fine tools.

You’ll find it maddening to do some of that stuff
without sanding boards, which are fortunately easy
to make by gluing sandpaper to a flat substrate.

If you use walnut or teak, you can get away with
filling joinery flaws with lacquer burn in sticks and under
a gloss finish like shellac they are almost invisible.
