Design is key to making a piece look and fit the room and environment. The number and layout of drawers, shelves, and doors are essential in achieving an aesthetic design. Too many elements will make the piece appear too busy; too few will compromise functionality.

Joints, such as rabbets, dados, mortise and tenons, and dovetails are commonly used for higher quality work, allowing you to enjoy the piece for years to come. Reproduction pieces have these and more intricate joints, and are held together by glues and wooden pegs.
