Default Re: Baird T5 restoration project.

Hi Nick,
fortunately there is not too much veneering work required for this job.
The CRT screen panel, the new control panel and the front panel will need veneering. The side panels are furniture grade plywood and have very nice wood grain patterns. The new panels can be stained and polished before final assembly. The mirror lid is in good condition and requires little attention other than stripping off the old lacquer and a few minor repairs to the veneers.

The screen aperture has a 30 degree chamfer around the edges. That part of the job went well, see second picture. However, things didn't go well when it came to routing out the 5mm recess for the implosion glass. The router tool kinda went wild and ruined the panel. So that panel will join the woodworm damaged parts. Scrap!
