Finished this RCA 10T for a collector/ restorer in Florida. This poor cabinet had been thru the ringer and needed much repair and a new factory looking finish. Now its ready for the trip back to Florida and to be put back together. The before pictures is the way I got it, missing veneer & partially stripped. Thanks for looking Fred Taylor Garland tx.

Beautiful job, Fred! How much does a job like that cost?
Just curious.

Nice recovery. RCA cabinets of the early metal tube era drive me crazy; seems like so many of them develop veneer issues. I'm close to throwing a 6K2 cabinet into the firewood pile because I fixed veneer on it fifteen years ago, and it's bubbling on the sides again and the top pulled off. And I don't want to talk about what happened with a T8-14 I did once.

Odd wood choices on these sets IMO, in that the front panel isn't all one sheet.

That was more than a cig burn. I replaced with all new veneer on the top along with front bottom horizontal strip was replaced with correct Australian walnut
