Although it goes somewhat contrary to "conventional wisdom", ... I'd recommend tackling something that you find particularly interesting, ... regardless of it's technical complexity.


For instance, ... I like to make "useful" things, ... rather than "ornamental" things.

Even though the "money" is more often to be found in ornamental work.

( Shoot, ... if I was "in it for the money", ... I'd still be designing Automation Systems. )


It's much easier to maintain your enthusiasm, when you're making something you want, or need, ... and intend to use.

I'll second Smoothbore. I've been accused of making items just for the excuse to make the tooling to make the item. I like tools and tooling. Even if all the difference between existing tools is a millimeter bigger or smaller on the punch. Or a curve for a chisel.
