Design… To me would be the most important to master.

The best joinery, construction methods, etc… do nothing if the project does’t move anyone to purchase, use, touch, look, etc.. the piece. It is what initially sparks ones interest. I also think this is the most difficult skill for most to learn and many will build things their entire life and never be good at it.

I know I have plenty of things I built over the years that are piss poor in this aspect. The function as intended, they are soundly constructed, etc… but overall miss the mark when it comes to what I consider craftsmanship.
