Default Re: Baird T5 restoration project.

At last I've found the 9mm plywood needed to match the veneered surfaces on the original side panels. So yesterday I set about making two new panels. The attachments show the surfaces will require more dark wood stain to look like the originals.
It will be recalled the side panels made earlier this year are a perfect fit but it was all too obvious these were nothing more than dark stained plywood, not a good look.
After this project is completed we'll find that there will be almost enough spare cabinet parts to make another T5 or T23.
