Electronics are great, but I really hate building the enclosures.

I don't like when a project doesn't work. Just take your time and enjoy your hobby and most of the time it will turn out good.

Two things.

The one that Wintermute said: Having so many projects but no time to finish them.

The second is: Deciding what to do, there's so much interesting stuff out there and I want to build them all!

Things I hate... hmmm...

1) Doing the perfectly clean soldering on an RCA plug only to realize that I forgot to pass the end cap through the wire first.
2) Burning the white insulation the second time and making a big ugly solder blob.
3) Doing the same thing on the second cable....
4) Applying the voltage on the new project after triple checking everything, only to send the caps to component heaven through a fountain of electrolyte because of mixing the common with V- wires...
5) Deciding to go slightly higher on voltage, only to realize that the filter caps are half a volt lower than the new expected one...
6) Having to wake 3 hours earlier to go to the local wood warehouse because they do not open in the evenings and on Saturdays.
7) Having to buy everything from abroad because local suppliers are a joke.
8) Seeing stuff for sale that are actually not stocked... And you learn about it only after submitting the order and waiting a month...
9) Not ever throwing anything away in case you need it.
10) Not having enough space for all the projects.
11) Not having enough time to finish all projects.
12) Losing interest after a while and starting something new

I seriously hate doing casework. Not the design, arrangement of PCBs, measurements etc but the actual drilling and the whole mess it leaves behind.

Wish I had the budget to just order predrilled, engraved etc enclosures from FPE/Schaeffer for all of my projects.

Agree, the case work is no fun at all. I'm jealous of those who are good at it.

I hate wiring up the finished project.
I hate spending days designing the pcb and later on find that the parts are obsolete.
I hate building a magazine project that doesn't work and then find out months later that there was an errata published showing mistakes in the original schematic.
I hate the mess my lounge becomes once a project has started.

That's a good one. I can barely move around in my room any longer because of all projects taking place in there. Speaker panels everywhere, drivers, PCB, boxes, tools and everything else in my little 16sqm room where I live :S
