    well john it looks good so far but the walnut veneer on the other one is better figured,, you should have saved some of the BE that you had a while back that some major bending.. and to see the inlay is gonna be intersting to watch

    Good job so far, although you should be careful so that it doesn't end looking like a reproduction, because if it does, you could have spared yourself a lot of work by making a new one.
    Best regards,
    Toni

    Great work John. I for one would like to see he radio guts that went into the cabinet. I used to get a real kick out of valve radios when i was a teenager. At one time i had three had them hooked up with a homemade kit to form a radio station. Got the maid to walk the streets with a transistor radio to her ear to establish the range of my transmitter. Great fun these old sets. Loved to sit and see what i could pick up over the air.
    cheers

    Very nice! But don't quit now. Let's see it with all the guts back in it and the speaker cloth, etc.

    Nice job!

    Does your wife know you're using her embroidery hoop for a turntable?

    I'm with Carol. Put the guts back in it - maybe even do a YouTube video of it, with sound so we know it plays...

    BTW, I'm guessing the radio itself is the good old "All-American 5 tuber?"
