Default Re: Baird T5 retoration project.

Hi Ant, About 80 per cent of the cabinet will need renewing and to do the job properly the correct materials will have to be found. The cabinet floor and shelf require furniture quality 15mm plywood. The cabinet sides and front panel use much thinner plywood. The cabinet mirror lid can be saved but will need re-veneering. Strange some wood parts have not been attacked by the woodworm.
