I sure wouldn’t attempt to build a work bench untill I got some joinery techniques down first…..I would practice on scraps of wood to figure out which ones you like (there are all kinds)/ will be doing….Mortise and tenon, dovetails, finger joints, box joints…...They all require lots of practice (and patience)...Get some shop time under your belt before attempting these, and you’ll be glad you did…..Otherwise, you’ll get discourged and frustrated trying to learn them…Don’t give up…..keep plugging away….Read all the woodworking magazines you can get, watch videos on these techniques, read some more magazines, Youtube, etc…...Did I mention read woodworking magazines…..?.......... Practice, practice, practice…..I’m still learning…..!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
