Hello all,

I recently bought a 1933 RCA R-73 tombstone radio. All of the veneer on the inside was loose in the cabinet. That's pretty much fixed now. I just realized that the veneer is missing on the outside sides. It had been stained and finished. It looks kind of ok, but I would like to re-veneer it. I found a photo of the same radio.
Can anyone tell me what kind of wood this looks like and where can I buy it?

Mike
