I’m about to purchase some cherry for a bedroom set consisting of two dressers and two bedside nightstands/cabinets. I’m wondering if I can sort of assembly line all four of these at the same time and save set up time. In the past I’ve just built one piece at a time. I’m thinking particularly about the sides, sub-top, and bottom panels where setups for dadoes, rabbets, dovetails are similar. I have a two-car garage shop and tools, other than the table saw, jointer and planer, are rolled out from the wall depending on what I’m doing. If I can set up one time for each task that should save some time. I can glue up one, maybe two panels per day with the space and clamps I have. My question is this, can I sticker and stockpile these panels for a week or two while I finish all the panel glue ups and machining required before assembly or is the risk of warping too great?
