Geoffrey Daugherty set a goal for himself at the age of 14: to become a bassist and a photographer and to work with stringed instruments, just like his dad.

Today, Daugherty has realized his dream as the owner of Daugherty Violin Shop in Eureka, which he runs with none other than his lifelong role model — his father Robert “Bob” Daugherty.

The business, located in the 1600 block of F Street, is a full-service violin shop, servicing stringed instruments of all shapes and sizes.

The Daughertys restore and tune everything from violins to cellos, and sell strings, bows and other accessories. They also sell and rent instruments and are working on a Web site to help educate customers.

Inside, the spacious shop is filled with stringed instruments in all stages of restoration and passers-by can see everything in progress.

But it’s not the shop itself that is unique, it’s the years of experience the two men bring to the North Coast.
