I found this on the FB sale page late last year and paid just $50. The veneer on the doors was all loose making it difficult to close the doors. I used Hide Glue to re secure the veneer back down. It did a great job. I just had to give it plenty of time to dry. The veneer details on the doors are a future repair. I just wanted to keep it as original as I could. I secured the veneer with Hide Glue to protect what was left. The horn screen was not touched due to advice from the membership here. The wood around the screen was carefully cleaned and polished.

Looking awesome. How'd you get the top of the lid to look so good?

I put in place a spare motor board lift knob that I had. Did this model have a nickel motor board knob or was it bronzed?.
