A good way to learn is to look at finished projects similar to what you want to build and see what everything looks like. You might not like the style, but focus on the construction. Look at the individual pieces of wood that make up the overall piece. Generally, you can’t go wrong if you make sure your piece has all of the same components. Most pieces have the same basic components, the only difference is the style used to make the components.

From there you can start to learn about the various methods of connecting the pieces together and what makes a better joint.

Hopefully, all of this makes some sense. Read some of the build blogs on LJ and you will get a sense of how folks go about building high quality projects that are durable, long lasting, and beautiful. Most of all, it takes practice.
