Excellent design and construction work!

It could be a home-brew, but the slots in the front of the chassis for the controls do not seem to be something a home-brew person would do, as they would know where they wanted to locate the controls.

Excellent work, fantastic design!

And a really nice choice of knobs, very appropriate. What are they from?

I believe the knobs came with the chassis, they were on it when I discovered it in the shop. I can't remember how I came by the set. I used a wooden Philco bezel to create the arcs for the speaker cutout. It was a fun project.

Larry, what a great job on both the wood work and the chassis. What did you use to get the chassis looking so great?
