I've been building furniture lately (a bed, a table and some small furniture for the kid), and it's amazing the freedom you feel from being able to rework or adapt furniture at will.
Don't like a part of it? Cut it.
Don't like the finish? Sand, repaint.
A piece didn't turn out as useful as you expected? Tear it down, build another one from the pieces.
