This whole project has been 2 steps forward, 2 steps back. It seems like I can't get any progress made at all. I either need new, speciallized tools, or some weird thing breaks, or a measurement is done wrong. Oh, and I can't forget that some of my templates have gone missing, and now I need new ones. I'm seriously thinking that it's going to be next year before this project is finished.
I did buy some purpleheart and African blackwood to use as inlay material for this project. I got to thinking that, yes it would look nice, but it will also extend the project by several months. I think that yes, one should do their best on a project like this, but when is enough, enough? While it's true that I'm only going to make one of these in my lifetime, I would like to complete it before I die. I don't want to have kids just for the purpose of them having to inherit this mad quest of finishing their father's crazy electric cello project.
