About: I enjoy. radio restoration and collecting and woodworking.

This is how the postal service delivered my last radio.

    A great job. You did well with that little amount of tape to hold it together before filling.

    it is hard to tell from the last picture, did you keep the wicker and dye it burgundy or did you replace it with a different material?

    Describe how you made the repairs and this would be a good instructable. Without some commentary it is just before and after photos.
