    Because for the color I wanted I couldn’t find an appropriate powder.

        You mentioned the future owner wanted the bezel a certain color. Does this mean you have a buyer in mind prior to purchasing these projects? I can’t image the amount of patience it must have taken to complete this project. Great job as usual....

          The "buyer" is my wife, who fell in love with it the moment she saw it and wants to display it permanently.

            This has been unreal. That last video has gotten me 600 subscribers and has 35,000 views in 3 days.

              I was going to "accidentally" drop it and smash it to pieces on camera, then have another video repairing it.

                  How do you think? Did someone post in a restoration forum or something?

                  It would probably make between 50 and 100 bucks at that point.....if I had been eligible.

                  However, I was approved for the ad program on Saturday, and I have officially been making daily revenue on YouTube.

                  Between us girls, this has the potential to make me far more money than Gatorchatter ever will. Potentially quit-my-job type money, and I'm being sincere. Needless to say, I'm taking it quite seriously. I'd be a fool not to.

                  If you're serious about this, a little piece of unsolicited advice. As hard as it is for most of us who post here, try to tone down the defensiveness/sarcasm of your responses to less-than-favorable reviews/comments. Most of your viewers are gracious with their words and critiques, but like anything else you have a few asshats as well. I would try to limit your responses to those comments with a simple thank you for watching and an acknowledgement of whatever advice (most of it BS I know) they offered and perhaps a short reason why you went the direction you did.

                  As an example:

                  Your response was, "Because it's ugly and boring?"

                  While I laughed at it because I know what to expect from you, the audience you're trying to reach on YouTube might not be as appreciative. Your goal should be to reel in as many viewers as you can and keep them; even the asshats.

                  I probably would have gone with a simple, "Hey Charles, thanks for watching! The buyer of this piece wanted the blue instead of the "off white" color. I like how it turned out."

                  Obviously you can handle your responses however you want, just wanted to give you some feedback. I've been linking your videos to people who are networked in the restoration community, so hopefully your subscription numbers and views will keep going up. Great job on your channel, Ox.
