Default Re: Baird T5 restoration project.

It was suggested to me that the cabinet top panel could be salvaged. I had my doubts but was willing to have a go. As the first picture shows the plywood panel is in just same bad state as all the others.
I was not entirely satisfied with the first attempt at making a new top panel so a new one is being made. The second picture shows the first stage of the construction of the new panel.
The book matched veneer strips arrived yesterday so a start can be made applying the veneers to the new front panels.
