“This is the Gray’s Anatomy of woodworking,” says Woodworking Magazine
You have the inspiration, desire, tools, materials, and woodworking know-how. But the tough part is figuring out how to construct the piece you want! Even if you have a picture of what you want to build, it isn’t likely to reveal how it’s put together.
So you start with a list of questions: What joints should you use? What’s the best way to attach the top? Hang the drawers? How long should the legs be? How do you deal with wood movement?
