Here's one more Detrola T2 came in for a refinish. The old finish was dried out, peeling off , yellowed , and cracking. The true beauty of the finish on this cabinet had been lost due to the deterioration of the finish. I know some of you may not refinish the cabinet because of finish loss on the other hand many folks want a new finish and that also helps protect the cabinet from moisture and will prolong the life of wood veneers.

File comment: Stripping tarnish off, these panels were much darker than what you see here in this second cleaning.

Ok the second Detrola Egyptian T2 is finished up, this one has the semi satin finish (60% gloss level) on it unlike the first T2 I did earlier with a high gloss was requested on that one. Both look just as nice. The finish may dull slightly more, this picture was takin hour or so after the last coat of clear was applied. Thanks for looking.
