'64 Harmony Rocket pt 2

We get the guitar up and running, eventually.  I really liked this one, it has a lot of personality.

1964 Harmony Rocket.

This one needed a lot of TLC.  The neck had a thick layer of epoxy put on it that had to be removed.  The frets had lots of life in them, but were a little beat up.

The guy who owns it got it from his grandfather and it was his first guitar so there is a lot of sentimental value to it.  He didn't want a full restore, just to make it playable so he could enjoy it again along with the memory of his grandfather.

The coffee table finally gets done!

A long series.  I think I have "project fatigue" from not only doing the project, but from going through the hours of video and reliving it over and over.  It turned out nice and was a fun build for the most part, but I am glad that I am finally at the end of it.

On the other hand.  Things have been slow in the shop for the winter, so it gave me a lot of footage to tide me through getting a video a week out.  So there is a plus to all the mistakes and fixing them.

Sally's Coffee Table Pt 14, The pain continues

We don’t get far in this episode but we do a lot of work getting there. In reality, I could have left all this footage out and no one would be the wiser. It could have been a completely sterile build on video, with no challenges or mistakes, but that is not real life.
