There at least three different ways to do any woodworking task. Try them all and keep what works best for you given your situation and skill level. Look at lots of old furniture and learn what worked well over time and what didn’t. Remember that much fine work was accomplished with simple tools. Every classic was once new and different. Just because a tool is expensive does not mean it is good. Just because a tool is inexpensive does not mean it is bad, or at least not inappropriate for the task at hand. We all have something to learn from the person next to us so try and find a woodworking mentor. And above all else, have fun
