Ya know, I think it is perfect.
I have always wanted a nice old dry wooden cabinet with a candle inside it... :roll:

Well, considering those Majestic sets are hard to give away, and often have warped potmetal tuning capacitors, perhaps its not much of a loss, but yeah... BARF!

I have an unmolested, original example of the bar(f) in question. I must have lucked out as the tuning cap is perfect and the set works quite well in its all original condition. I only power it up every now and then. Rolling the dice each time I know.... :roll: .

Makes perfect sense to me. Only a drunk would appreciate something like this.

That third one is totally distressed... It even looks like it wants to be burnt.

That's not a bar, the interior shelf is at a height that would make actually holding bottles of anything impossible. It's more like a bar-ware cabinet.

That said, I generally think that's a fine use of an old highboy like that.

The Offer up radio is not to far from you and Ted.
