So, I picked up another little project (because I needed yet another one). Here are the before pictures (from the ebay auction).

And a couple after pictures. Excuse the funky fluorescent lighting. I still need to re-plate the gold parts, and have the motor serviced....but that won't happen for a little while.

I had to manufacture three of the column bases out of a scrap of mahogany, and a special thanks to David from this board for selling the one missing brass column base to complete the columns (It's the one that isn't complete worn out)
