He sure did everything the hard way (except inlaying the pentapus ), I wonder how may hours he actually had in it.
Also, he must have spent a lot of time setting up and editing video, lot's of artsy angles and lighting. Excellent job on both.

I liked when he shook his hand when he was cutting the ebony... And then when it's finally cut, he slumps against it. I lolled. I guess he saved that bowl of ebony dust for packing in the inlay. I should have maybe done that with my dots. I'll remember to save my dust in future.

The edit where he strokes once with the hand saw, and then zip, it's through-- was cool too. They did that a few times.

Cool.

I miss him being on the local channel. My local PBS station has gone full in on the British TV, completely turning its back on American greats like Underhill.

That was very clever, show the start and end, there's no reason to show him stroking away all through the cut....

or he has a minion do most of the cut.
His chisels are sharp, and he knows how to use them, no faking that.

If you watch the Crimson guitar build videos, and you should they're pretty great once you get used to adult Stewie, he harps on that, shows you how to sharpen and polish them. Seems to have a mildly perverse affection for sharpening things.

That's a chore to most, like sanding is. I find that I enjoy sanding a hell of a lot more when I'm doing something fun like building a gittar. When you're sanding a door or a window frame or a boring... thing.... it's pretty much torture.

I think in one of the early episodes of the 90 hour Complication build, he sharpens gouges. Makes me want expensive hand tools that I'll probably never use. What with the dremel and Router and all...

His videos are half wood work, half luthiery. He loves crafting and he keeps noticing that he loves his job. I like that.

When you're sanding a project like the guitar body you're shaping, creating, thinking about what to do next, and how close you are to being able to play it and show it off.

When you're sanding a door or window frame you're thinking about how you don't want to be.

The first Fender prototype.

Who built the first electric rock & roll guitar?

I think I briefly had one of those organs I got at a garage sale or out of the trash when I was a kid.

Emenee was a slightly better than average toy company, after all you can't make any money on air guitars.
I had an Emenee trumpet, I could give a poor rendition of taps on and the was my entire repertoire.
