Asthetically, most times the fewer joints you have the better as matching grain patterns is usually a challenge. Also, you want the boards to all plane the same way. Having some design feature in a piece that keeps wide surfaces from cupping means that you don’t have to do Norm’s method, which it seems to me is going to make the piece look like it came from IKEA.
