As we move along our personal woodworking path, the concept of “challenging” will obviously change. I remember the first time I saw a Greene & Greene piece. I thought I would never have the skill to execute all of those fine details. With numerous Greene & Greene-inspired pieces behind me now, I am looking to expand my horizons in other areas, though I must admit I still have several Greene & Greene pieces on my “must build” list including several of their chairs. By the way, the Blacker House Rocking Chair pictured left was made by Darrell Peart. Chairs, in my opinion, have the potential to be some of the most complicated pieces of furniture to build. In addition to looking cool, chairs ultimately must be comfortable. No matter how beautiful a chair looks, if it hurts your butt when you sit in it it could be considered a design failure.
So out of the list below, what projects do you consider to be the most challenging? Have something that ins’t on the list? Leave a comment with your thoughts.
