At last I've made a start on the veneering of the cabinet. First task, lay on veneers around the chamfered CRT screen aperture.

My goodness! That's a rather higher quality of construction than EMI used.

Hi Peter,
although that said I wish Baird Television had simply applied brown paint instead of the veneer. I've no idea how manufactures laid on the pieces of veneer around the chamfered edges of screen apertures and also radio tuning scales because for me it's a time consuming and messy process doing it.

Hi David,

If it was a mechanised process you might think of separate sides and corners. Four straight sides and four identical corner pieces.

How was the original structured?

That's going to look very good David!
Quite a lot of work.

I think I have only two sets with this construction: Pye LV30 and the 1948 Philips experimental projection receiver (SX861A).

Hi Peter,
The attachment shows a corner of the screen aperture of the original Baird top panel. I just can't believe the veneer around the edges was applied by hand, some automated process must have been employed.

"Quite a lot of work." Hello Jac, I reckon it took almost two hours to do edge veneering. No production planner would allow for that.

Hi David,

Is it one continuous strip with just the one seam?

Hi Peter,
because of it's terrible condition one can't really tell how it is on the T5 panel. However, the T23 has a similar CRT panel and would appear two strips have been used for the chamfered edge.

Two pieces of wood veneer have been cut to size and will be glued into position.
The attachment shows the symmetrical wood grain pattern and this will be continued on the other two panels.

I faced a similar problem on my RCA 621TS, except that somebody in the past had wanted a larger sized picture so they cut a bigger hole in the CRT escutcheon !

When I first saw it I thought Gulp ! how to fix it. I thought of simply re-manufacturing the part, but I wanted to save as much of the original part as possible.

So I decided to cut it out further and glue in some Tasmanian Oak with epoxy resin. After that I re-worked it by hand to create the original shape (see pictures). It was a long job.

Link to the restoration of Hugo's RCA 621TS:
http://worldphaco.com/uploads/621TSARTICLE.pdf

A mighty press to fix the veneers to the panel was set up last night. It consisted of a Formica faced board, an 88 pound (40Kg) Marconi VT50 and two heavy radios.
The contraption has done it's job so now the veneer edges have to be trimmed.
