Been working on this one lately.Sanded it down with my electric sander to get the finish off. Now the cabinet is ready for fine sanding by hand now.

Fine sanded it this morning and put a coat of sanding sealer on.
Then it started to sprinkle (love the weatherman I can aways count on him getting the forecast wrong....)Got it inside where it's safe though.Looks like rain for the next week straight now gotta love it!

I'd post in antique radio restoration, and, show the link to this post as well so people may see the entire thing.
You might even show the thing together in radio restoration at the end. But, you don't have to do that, since you show it here.

Nope it's going on my 38-7 cause I cant find the chevron cloth in a wide enough piece to fit it. Smile

Hi, nice work, I see you put a lot of time into it.
But, I thought I'd throw out some tips, not to slam you in any way.
In some of the earlier pics, you have sanded thru the veneer. (On the pics showing the side curved areas.)
Just some tips, it is best not to use any kind of power sander to remove a finish. Strip the finish off with a 'refinisher'. It disolves the old lacquer without removing any wood.
Hand sand as necessary keep the veneer removal to a minumum. Sand with the grain, impossible to do with an orbital sander.
Don't forget to use a grain filler that will eliminate the grain pores shown on the last pic. You will end up with a smooth finish, just like the original.
Each cabinet you do, you will add new things to try out.
Good luck.
