Vacuum Tube stereo amplifier – 6L6 output driven by 6SL7 in SRPP mode. Stainless steel chassis with Ebony side cheeks and center transformer cover. Ebony sides are cut in complex curved tapers on bandsaw and finished with oil and beeswax. Sorry for the bad iPhone pics… looks better in person!

Awesome use of vacuum tubes and ebony! Nothing like vacuum tube audio, whether in ham radio or audiophile use…

Beautiful job! Nothing better than a woodworking audio nut! Wish I could build one like this but I missed electronics class. ;)
