I think you are just suffering from "I've almost got this completed, and
I don't want to screw it up! syndrome".
I'm afraid the anxiety just goes along with giving a darn. You're
doing nice work! If you pay attention you're not likely to screw
anything up! ; )
Greg there will always be worry! ;~)
As you get better and build confidence, you,,,
1. Build bigger.
1.a. You worry about if it will fit.
2. Much bigger.
2.a. You worry about getting it down the hall, around the corner, and
hair bin back into a bedroom.
3. Much much bigger.
3.a. You worry about the possibility of it not fitting in the bed of
your truck and how many trips will it take.
3.b. You worry about finding some one to help you move the piece, and
you hope he is stronger than you. ;~)

I had that problem once. Built two Eastern red cedar armoires, one for
her walk in closet, one for mine. Not huge armoires, maybe 50" tall by
24" deep by 36" wide.
I planned carefully, made sure they would fit through the various doors.
Mine did, hers didn't. It would have if it hadn't needed to turn around a
partition opposite her closet. What to do, what to do...
What I did was saw it in half so I had a 12" front and a 12" back. Put
them in the closet. glued them back together. You'd never know they had
been cut in two.
When we sell this place someday I hope the new owner likes them, hers
isn't coming out. Unless he saws it again :)
The very act of the first tipping of the glue bottle, to release its
contents on all that carefully prepped joinery, requires the same
emotional preparation as going into battle.
Means all is as it should be...
You know what we could use? A sound-activated adhesive. Apply it in as
leisurely a fashion as you like, get everything lined up perfectly, then
(after taking the dog around back) hit it with a 25kHz tone: "Presto":
I can dream, can't I?
Actually most Franklin/TiteBond glue will cure in the presence of
ultrasonic frequencies. You just need the devise to emit the sound.
But this speeds cure time not open time. ;~(
Now I cannot point you to where I have read this but I have read this on
a few occasions.
