All they have to do is find a mark who believes that. There's one born every minute.

Looks like it was dipped in a vat of Polyurithane.

Absolutely stunning Art Deco style console radio from 1933.

Apparently the seller and I view this radio very differently. :wink:

Love the Deco style of the cabinet! Don’t love the “dipped in a vat of honey” look of the finish in it! Seller says it’s a piano finish :roll: :lol:

Find it here on San Francisco Craigslist too:

For the record, I have no affiliation with this.

This is probably a situation where it probably looks better in person. It looks like they used flash photography which would make anything shiny look awful.

I don’t know, Seth. I’d say this guy was only a week ahead in the “slathering” class of the guy you mentioned in your refinishing nightmare post….. zoom in on the pics of both. I think this guy had a slightly smoother spatula to apply with…..

Yeah, Its a pretty bad job for sure. I " think" it could be saved by simply using some fine sanding to even out that finish and knock down the sheen. Otherwise stripping that stuff off would be a nightmare!
