Gosh! Never really thought about what part of woodworking I don’t like.

When I was about 9, my Granddad told me that ANY day fishing is better than ALL days spent working! That is kind of my approach to woodworking. All jobs concerning woodworking are better than just about anything else I do.

I would say that my LEAST favorite activity I do is developing my bill of materials and my cut lst (which frequently are one in the same) when I am designing my own furniture or building custom stuff for others.

I am not crazy about trying to price my items when working for others, either.

And yes, I even like sanding! Give me a random orbital sander and a box of hook and loop sanding discs, a good dust collecting device nearby (a downdraft table or a 20×20 furnace filter taped to a 20×20 box fan), and I’ll sand all day with no complaints!
