Starting any wood furniture project requires the use of good plans. You will want to be able to reference these plans as you go step by step through the project. This is true for both the beginner or journeyman wood worker. Using easy to follow wood furniture plans will help you avoid many of the pitfalls that you would otherwise encounter. Some of the problems you could encounter if you choose to avoid using a reliable or no furniture plan at all are as follows:

This is critical because not following the proper step by step building process could lead to building a part of the furniture structure that is not necessary yet. This piece would therefore have to be trashed.
2. Not getting the project completed because you end up finding it almost impossible to get to end product you originally had in mind. Having a picture of the end product combined with simple step by step instructions, will help guide you in a logical way, to achieve the desired end result.
3. Spending more time than you anticipated. Lets face it, if you have a busy schedule, you want to get your wood furniture project completed in a reasonable amount of time. Using an inferior wood furniture plan or none at all will most certainly cause you spend way more time than you are able to afford.
4. Wasting Money. Encountering any of the previous three pitfalls will waste money.
5. Using wood furniture plans that are incomplete and difficult to follow. You will need plans that give you easy to follow step by step instructions so you can get your furniture project completed in a timely and cost-effective manner.
