I bought this GE model 165 at an Estate sale last year, [It is a Westinghouse, but I used the GE schematic].I did the chassis during the winter .
  Well now I had some warmer weather,  so I did  the cabinet with gojo and Trade secret.
It turned out very nice, so I thought I would post some photos, before I put it on Kijiji
because I just don't have room for more consoles.
  I would like to keep it because it is a nice looking radio and it plays very good.

May be we have a moderator who can tell me why i can't post more than three photos?
I resize all my photos and they all work on other forums.

Nice,

Don't know what it is, but most of the Canadian sets, (the ones I have seen) look far more elegant than U.S. sets overall, there are exceptions. The use of garniture and real marquetry greatly enhance the cabinet. No slouching in the chassis either...

I really can't pin point this. I wonder if it has to do with the overall economy or is it a cultural thing.

None the less, like any 70 yo furniture product, aging and darkening of the finish happens. Re-finishing, toning, bringing out the colors of the real woods ultimately restores their beauty.

Great Job!

As always, another fantastic restoration! I don't blame you for wanting to keep it as it's a beautiful radio!

The more I look at it the more convinced I am that it's a keeper.
May we see the engine of this beauty????
