I have a Radiola Grand that had the grill missing. I got a copy of the grill and had a couple extra made. These use South American mahogany just like the originals except these have a MDF core. I took the tracing to a wood worker who scanned it into a computer. He then adjusted it to make sure that all the lines were straight and uniform. It was then cut out with a laser. They are sized to fit my Radiola. I then had some stain color matched to my radio. They are stained and finished with shellac. The back has some light stain but no finish. I do not know how consistent the Radiola Grand opening is. It may be tight on your radio. I also do not know how the stain and finish on your radio has aged. There may be some difference in color. These do have some shine to them. $50 each plus shipping.

MDF is Medium Density Fiberboard (particle board). The original plywood would have been wood ply in the middle. No longer available. The front and back are still South American mahogany like the original. That is pretty hard to get. I had to special order and buy a full 4'X8' sheet. Anyway this is what I was told.

Regular style plywood, would be Baltic Birch Plywood. https://www.woodworkerssource.com/blog/ ... to-use-it/
