    Watch how furniture restorer restores a guitar
    This guitar was made by Olbrei & Co, in Tallinn, somewhere between 1907-1940. Restoring a guitar was quite a challenge for me. In this video you will see, did I succeed or not.

@richard mooney The Chinese have been using Lacquer Since the seventh century. Yes, I know they had lacquer when this guitar was made, and Lacquer is the best finish for musical instruments!

@Josh Bull Do you think they had Laquer when that guitar was built.. Shellac was the traditional finish..

@richard mooney For one thing, he used shellac instead of lacquer for the finish. Another thing was the way he tore it apart and the way he put it back together. Also, he should have replaced the bridge block.

You got the furniture part down. As for guitar you could have done better. (Polish frets, etc.) I do love the quilted look on the back. All and all you did a decent job. Kept it original looking on front side.

This is not restoration: when you remove the original material by killing the back of the guitar! If you restore this way ..... after the third restoration, after a hundred years, what remains of the original wood?

I can sand 0,4mm thick veneer 3 times. The guitar wood 10 times thicker, 3-4 mm. Actually, when sanding, the wood goes thinner, therefore its sound property's improve, because thin material vibrates more than thick material.

Paint the dots with some superglue or wax or something before staining and then you can just scrape them clean afterwards.

Great love you put into this odd 7-string guitar. Any shamers should put out their own videos doing it the way they think best. If my dad was to do this video, since he was a cop and mechanic it wouldn't have been by the book and like the experts do it, but he would have put his heart into it, and I would cherish the item since he did the work, and he's now passed away. Your kids will love owning this guitar one day, as long as the steel strings don't snap it in half.

Hello Ahti I don't know anything about musical instruments. But the people who are commenting about patina obviously don't know anything about repairing wood. 400 grit is not aggressive, you removed the old discolored varnish while removing as little of the wood as possible. You gave back the beauty the builder intended the guitar to have.

Not as cringeworthy as the title suggested. A new brace might have been a better option. Was the skunk stripe on the back really necessary? It was probably a good idea to leave the front alone - too bad it looks so rough. The finish seems to be furniture, rather than guitar inspired (shellac vs lacquer clear coat, painted fretboard, wax vs oil for fretboard). In general, painted fretboards are considered "cheap" - even if that's the way it was made. A natural finish fretboard or perhaps even a stained fretboard with a painted neck might have been a better option.

Looks like what he did was the right way to do it. Looked like a lot of it was overkill. Did it really need to be done that precisely. The finish product looks good I think I could achieve the same look with some mineral spirits and some Johnson paste wax and 0000 steel wool. Now that cracked on the back I would have left unless it was falling of but it didn't look that way. That guitar had some age to it just a guess would be 1880s something 140 years old won't look brand new. You restore the piece not refinish. If so you could sand it down with 80 grit and take every scratch and ding out of it . Then you would have 140 year old guitar that looks like you bought it from K-mart yesterday. But it's all in the eye of the person doing the work. That's where experience comes in . In my shop I would put the new guy on it . This is all opinion. But I've been doing furniture for over 30 years

made my teeth grit. guitar should be set up for silk and steel with that old style bracing.Too msuch shellac spoils any time it might have. Since it has little value as is I would have considered going to modified "X" bracing. You have good skills but stay away from vintage guitars.

Restoration of vintage instruments is better left to a luthier. There were many cringeworthy scenes in this video and the loss of the original finish and patina was saddening. The entire guitar could have been salvaged by re-humidifying the entire guitar before working on it. There would have been no need to spilt the back to reset it in place and the original finish could have been saved.

as you decided to rebuid the guitar I don't get why you didn't sand smoother the front part. It seems there is still old scratched varnish. At this point made sense to completely remove old varnish and repolish in shellac as you did for the back part.
