    What is one thing you dislike the most about woodworking?








    **Rules**
    There is no minimum post requirement,
    Leprechauns, primates, woodticks, miss-placed texans, and wood lovers are welcome to post an answer.
    But who cares, no ones reads the rules anyhow....

    The mess. I'm not the neatest nor the most organized person and it is painfully obvious in my Shop.

    Cleaning up and reorganizing everything. I have a very small shop so it gets cluttered and impossible to move around in pretty quick.

    Cleaning the shop!!! And then sanding somewhat, I just don't like spending the time to sand properly, once I get started on it I get in the zone and just do it and then it's not so bad.

    While I agree with all of these responses, what I dislike the most are casual acquaintances thinking that I’m just delighted when they ask me to repair one of their pieces of trash furniture.

    The mess doesn't bother me badly, but the lack of work space is kinda rough.
    I don't mind the dust, heck it covers up for the shower I missed a week ago.
    I'd have to say getting the time to do anything would be my biggest hang-up.

    A few thoughts on this:
    I’d have to say clean-up is what I dislike most. I usually let shavings be the antishock part of my floor— even though I have thick rubber mats around my machines— until I start sneezing.
    As far as tidying up— I keep the most used tools, finishes, etc in easy reach— seems to upset some neatniks. Yeah it occasionally looks like chaos, but I’m happy.
    I’ve been told that “A clean desk is a sign of a diseased mind (— don’t come look at mine), so I’ve expanded that to include one’s shop. There ya go @Tony — no shame!
    Of course the other is NOT having enough shop time. Have to work so that’s not changing, and swmbo seems to come up with stuff at the most inopportune time that have to be done now. Can’t complain much— lets me buy tools when I show a need (am blessed that way)
