We’ve all had a DIY furniture fail. We’ve accidentally driven a pocket screw through the edge of a board or ripped a piece too narrow on our table saw. These mistakes are a waste of time, a waste of money and cause us major frustration. The other thing is these mistakes aren’t accidents at all. Most of these mistakes can be avoided. In this post I'm sharing a simple tip to help you avoid furniture fails.
Doors with inset panels look awesome, but building them requires sophisticated woodworking tools and techniques—right? Wrong! Just make your doors from 3/4"-thick material, and make panels from 1/2"-thick plywood. Screw the panels in place with pocket-hole screws, and you'll have a great-looking panel door without having to be a woodworking expert!
