Probably what I'm working on now - gearing up and building acoustic guitars. Every step along the way requires another fixture, jig, or tool that is necessary to ensure some degree of consistency and repeatability in subsequent builds. But it's a blast!!

It would be this from 1989.
The pic of the largest is attached with a close up detail shot.

The diameter of the semi-circle is 10 feet.
Three smaller windows were part of the package deal. All had the same borders.
Intense.
Yes, these are not wood. And there is no room for error. There is no "wood filler" equivalent for glass.
All hand cut. Sandblasted etched glass.

At this point, a series of jigs for frame making and one for cutting small parts using a Japanese saw. The small parts jig requires a level of precision that is pressing my skills, the frame making and spline jigs must be an exact 90, which I've found is easier to describe than build. There have been a few projects where I used the wrong material or made such a fundamental mistake that I had to toss the project, so I think the answer to this depends a little on the amount of time you've been doing woodworking. I'm not going to do much furniture building, but when I do, I suspect that project will belong on this list.

Mine was the bench I made for the kitchen eating area. The wife found unfinished chairs that she liked. The hard part for me was routing the pattern for the back of the bench and corner piece to match the attached chair that became the left side of the bench.

My most demanding project is any one that SWMBO demands that I do. Any questions?

Drat! I started to answer, but - was it demanding or demeaning?
