Honestly, the biggest thing that makes a huge difference? Get rid of measurements. Use a tape measure for rough lengths in the beginning, and then get rid of it once you start cutting. Measure everything off of other pieces. Make sure all your cuts are the same by setting up fences for batch cuts rather than making marks off of a tape measure. Cut joinery by referencing off of the pieces that will be connected. Measurements are only a way to mess it up.

-- The quality of one's woodworking is directly related to the amount of flannel worn.
