This was not a basket case , but close to it.
There were a few dings in the veneer that had to be patched up,
and of course the usual stripping staining and so forth.
The radio is a rogers 8R723 and it has the 6X6 eye tube which works , but it a little dim. but that is OK.
It did not take too much to do the chassis just caps and cleaning the controls.
The glass had to have some whit paint added to fill in the areas that it was missing.

I like to see any radio that others have refinished , so I thought I would post this one

Dan,

You've done a really great job of taking one of Roger's less exciting cabinets and turning it into an attractive piece.

cheers

Simply gorgeous. A beautiful finish makes even one of the plainer or simpler cabinets a complete standout.

Well done!
