It’s listed as oak but it’s really walnut. But what kind of walnut? I’ll let the experts here ruminate on this.

Definitely a project machine for those who like doing that type of work.

SAVED! I accompanied Roger Merenkov to the Maywood residence and he bought the Victrola. I will post pictures after Roger gets around to the clean up and minor repairs It has the nicest exhibition reprducer I have ever seen. The American walnut is stunning.

That’s good news. It looked too good to be turned into a liquor cabinet :D
