Post by Where did I put that... on Thu Aug 19, 2010 4:12 pm

I was wondering if anyone knows of a place that does photo finishing. I'm not an artist by any stretch of the imagination and I'm not young enough to be good with computers so making it myself would be a waste of time, resources, patients and hair.
I've got a rare full-faced Philco 38-93 tombstone that has a good chunk of the finish missing and I'd like to get it back to the way it was.
Any thoughts?
I'd attach a photo but I'm not sure how to do that which highlights my computer skills or lack thereof.

Why not just apply wood veneer over it. Some work with a coping saw for speaker grill-work, but otherwise very simple, I would say.
The three horizontal stripes could be accomplished by tape on those areas and using a almost blond stain.
