While stationed in Wales many years ago I built a solid White Ash cabinet for my component stereo system. It was our only entertainment contact with the wider world because American televisions did not work there. Now it is obsolete and in the way. I did not want to throw it out. The thought feels like discarding a child.

No one has these large stereos now. A friend said she might use it as a curio cabinet. I took it to the shop removed the turn table slide out and replaced it with a drawer. I removed the swivel Television base. I added a solid back and updated shelf mounting system, touched up the finish and it looks pretty good. She was pleased and after many moves it is still solid as a rock. I hope it gives her years of good service.

Sorry about the picture. I can’t seem to make them stand straight.

I had this problem using my phones pictures. Before you post, go to picture adjustments and rotate e picture.
You’ll find the right direction after a couple of tries.

Looks nice Terry.

For the picture- another fix is to slightly crop the image on your phone before posting. For some reason, LJs doesn’t recognize the correct format of images taken on phones… lots of people have that same problem. You don’t have to crop it much, but when you crop and resave the image LJ will recognize the newly saved orientation.
