Cupboard of magical things.... well, the cupboard at least

I managed to put together and finish a miniature cupboard. Please keep in mind it's my first one.

It's made from 4mm thick plywood, but I think that if the wood would be thinner it would be a bit nicer.
I have plans for a couple of shelves and a kitchen counter/island, which will be made from real wood and will only be 2mm thick, which I think is better. But for now this is it, with 4mm thickness.

Luckily for me, my father works with wood and has a a bunch of tools. I made a plan and he cut the pieces with electrical tools, so I don't have to do it by hand :) I would cut the pieces myself but he's very protective of my fingers, hahaha.

Measurements: W 12cm x H 18,5cm X D 4,5cm (the top 2cm)

Assembled cupboard

Painted but not yet sanded to give it a worn look.

Finished product....

A few goodies on display, not what will be in here. Still need to make a lot more!

Close up. Here you can also see a leather bound grimoire and the newest quill.

Ok, this is it for now. I'm off to make some more miniatures.


  1. Very Nice! I love your books and scrolls. I can't wait to see more :)


    1. Thank you so much! Your fabulous miniatures inspired me to try and make some myself. I can only hope to someday be able to do even a small portion of what you can create :)

  2. Always pleased to follow a new miniaturist - good luck
