Well Steve has finished the new Front Panel and the Speaker Grill

I am awaiting Toner order to arrive to finish off the other Parts of this cabinet.
Top, Bottom, and the 2 Sides are ready for toner then Finish before reassembly with Front.

Steve did a GREAT job reproducing these Panels for me. He is an artist with wood.

More Later

Now it looks like I am gaining on it.

Need to find a Grill Cloth.

I NOW can start assembly. I will keep you posted.

It is not as I would have done in my earlier days. But to be Honest Best I can do in my present state.

So 7/8 wide ? are the sides slightly beveled?

Hard to tell from a Pic

Can you get a micro of a section close and clear?

I will get Steve to try to make them.


Thanks
Bob T

I will get a picture when I get home later today. The piece is completely flat and the entire piece of molding is 1 inch exactly. The rope inlay is just under 1/4 of an inch.
