To a cabinet maker, the modern contemporary style of furniture is a real blessing, as its very simplicity make it so simple to build. It is usually just a series of boxes which are easily made from cheap, veneered sheet materials with some solid wood lipping to hide the edges. The appearance of thick and chunky sections is achieved by laminating several sheets together, another very simple process.
The only slight issue is how to form the joints, as conventional techniques of jointing are not applicable for these man-made materials. You are restricted to biscuit or dowel joints, or as in this case, you can actually screw it all together provided you plan the assembly sequence in advance, so that all the screw holes are eventually covered.
