Many approaches to studying 3-manifolds start by cutting the manifold into simpler pieces.  In the context of contact geometry, I'll describe how to decompose an arbitrary 3-manifold M as a compactification of solid tori in order to study the Legendrian knot theory associated to M and get a simple combinatorial description of the manifold.
