This is an old radio from the 40’s that belonged to my grandmother. I refinished it for my mother. The veneer was water damaged in numerous place and had to be patched. It’s walnut as best as I can tell. The patches aren’t perfect, but overall it turned out pretty good (you can see some on the side shot). Not so easy matching up almost 80 year old walnut, which I understand fades a little over time.
I stripped the finish off, applied some light walnut stain, and finished with satin arm-r-seal.
The plastic faceplate was destroyed and had to be replaced. I couldn’t find any online, so I made one out of a piece of 1/4” walnut.
