What is the key to staving off boredom and frustration during a finishing/re-finishing project. I started this project a couple months ago, finishing a new neck and re-finishing a body that will eventually go together and become an Esquire. The end game is a relic, but I still want to start with a well done finish on both the guitar and neck and I'm almost there, but it's been a struggle keeping my head in the game. It just seems endless at times and sometimes i look at all the parts and get the urge to slap it all together and get on with it. So what's your method of dealing with drying and curing times and other frustrating things like blemishes that must be dealt with? Is it better to have several projects going in various stages so that you always have something to work on or do you just use the down time to play the guitars you already have? I'm usually good at rolling up my sleeves and keeping my nose to the grind stone, but since I don't have a shop with dedicated space for guitar projects, I often have to totally set up and breakdown my work area so life can continue around here while nitro dries and cures. Basically, I find the whole process more of a frustration than a challenge.
