Very well done, my friend, was the choice of wood from the client or from you, in either cases it looks great. bravo

Thanks very much Andrek.

It’s a non-traditional choice of wood for the cabinet to be sure. Most of them were Walnut or Mahogany.

He said he wanted something a little lighter, so I suggested the Maple. I had some quilted maple on hand and suggested he use it for the front bezel. He liked it, so we went ahead with it.

Professional looking cabinet Jerry. Elegant design too. I wouldn’t mind having the receiver myself also.

Thanks Dave…These receivers are apparently a highly sought after item amongst audiophiles. They’re tube amps and apparently have a wonderful sound. The other thing is that it appears that many of them, oddly enough, were sold without a cabinet. Go figure. I did a repair on one for a friend, and when I had it in my shop, I made a template of it, thinking there might be some work out there. Turns out there is.
