The book "Zenith Glory Years 1936 -1945" by Cones, Bryant & Blankinship on page 149 shows a color photo of the Zenith 15-U-270 that appears to be your cabinet. Gives you a reference to the cabinet feet.
If Joe can not find the feet, try a search for unfinished cabinet wood feet. Or maybe a rough flee market donor cabinet.

I pretty sure Joe will find the feet , stuck in corner somewhere. Joe says he has them but where? I have been looking around on line for similar feet. They call them ogee bracket feet, un finished furniture legs and trim for antique furniture supply. Thays you all the compliments.

Hi Fred: I am into colors tonight. Can you share with us what you used in the way of stains and toners on this one? I have a cabinet that appears to be mahogany that I will be doing soon and hope to learn more from you. Thanks Mike McKenzie
