I don’t think there is a simple answer to this question. For me it really depends on the nature of the project.

I like to cut everything that requires the same saw setting at one time but I don’t want to get to far ahead of myself. I could envision cutting all the pieces for the base of the wishing well at one time and then assembling the base. Then move ahead and cut the pieces for the next phase.

FYI – sometimes its a good idea to sand and finish as you go because early in the assembly process you may have easier access to these portions of the project.
