Theres always a part of a every project that I'm doing and it depends on what knind of project it is. But I have two main peeves to projects. For the bigger/more detailed project my peeve is sanding. I hate sanding. But when it comes to finishing a project I hate spray finishing. Yes you may think I'm crazy but I HATE spray finishing. I'm one who loves to put on wipe on poly.

Whats your peeves?

At this moment it is trimming iron on edge banding, I f%#$^&% hate it. Why don't they make the stuff the same size as 3/4 inch plywood???? Next to that is glue squeeze out, you know the one, you didn't catch it untill it was too late.

My peeves are all associated with my wife. She tacks on projects faster than I can knock them off and trying to "pin" her down is frustrating. Her answer is "Just build it, you know I will like it". Of course, if I do that, invariably I will have "misunderstood" something that she clearly remembers telling me about the project.

Mark, I really don't have a pet peeve while in my shop. I enjoy doing eveything in there, no matter what I'm working on. Right now I've got about 4 projects going at the same time. All are different, but all fall under the catigory of woodwoking in the usual manner. If I had a peeve, I think it would be finishing a piece. I hate the down-time of drying, sanding, fininsh, etc. You get the pix. I don't even mind sweeping, cause I like a neat, tidy shop. Heck, I even sweep while building a piece. So my peeve is miner-- to me anyway.

My biggest frustration is actually getting a project started. Once I make the first cut, I can be tenacious about finishing. That brings up my next peeve--Getting interrupted--by anything. I'm close to finishing a bed I'm building and we had to go out of town. All I could think of was how much I could have done if I could have stayed home.

Scott Bryan nailed my pet peeve. Love it when you're half way through a project and the CFO comes up with 2 or 3 more things she wants yesterday. The other thing is trying to explain to people that to do the job right there is a certain amount of waiting time. They all think it can be done in 5 minutes(like that production line rubbish you see in cheap stores) I have never spray finished anything either, hand rubbed is the best result.

Sanding and finishing. I probably wouldn't mind spraying if I didn't have to clean up afterward.

My own growing list of limitations as I age and health declines. I'd elaborate but I'm sure no one wants to hear that stuff. I can say that some things I used to do with ease now are difficult and require huge amounts of patience to accomplish.
