The reason most of us hobbyist woodworkers go to the shop is to have fun. Designing our own projects. Working with beautiful wood. Skillfully cutting joints. Unveiling the finished project for display and admiration.
But, it’s not all fun and games. In fact, some of the tasks we have to do are tedious, time consuming, and many woodworkers will put off doing them because they would never be considered fun. “I’ll clean the shop tomorrow.” “I hate dragging out all of my sharpening equipment just to touch up that chisel.”
This week, we want to know what woodworking task you consider the absolute worst. I mean, we’re talking about the kind of task you would build a robot to do if you had the time, skill and the robotics degree from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology.

If I could become as good at home as I am at work, then every tool would always be put back where it belongs!!! Somehow I need to develop that same mindset–put it back where it belongs as soon as I’m done……
You needed an “All of the above”. That is my most truthful answer. Altho, I do enjoy finishing to some degree.
I’m with Verna. I’m not by nature a neat and tidy person. Although, I love it when everything is neat and tidy. Would it be too extravagant to have a shop maid?[:o
A shop maid? Hmmm… Interesting!
I’m thinking of a shop robot. That would totally kick butt. Kinda like having kids who would clean for you without complaining or asking for an allowance!
