I have an Atwater Kent model 10 breadboard set that I think it a 4340. The components are salvageable but the board itself isn't so I am thinking of making a new board. To do that I need to know what type of wood was originally used and the other thing finding out what was the shape of the profile that they routed around the outside.

Hi Ed,

I've been told it was mahogany.

But I'm not a wood-working guy, so ...

Note that there are three pieces.
The ends supposedly kept the main board from warping.

I think the router bit will be special.

Just curious, I know a lot of the early radios used shellac as a finish. Would a breadboard such as this be shellac, or the common laquer finish?

I saw one for sale and it was made of walnut, so did they use both walnut and mahogany? I saw some that looked a lot like mahogany.
