Fellow member sent me this little climax for a fresh factory finish and to re veneer top to eliminate the holes that were drilled in it from a handle that was put on at some point in its life, not suppose to be there. This little guy had been refinished at some point also, lets make it great again! Stay tuned for updates on this channel to see progress being made. How do you guys like the table I restored, that's going to be a very nice table for antique radios, I put a few deferent radios of mine on it for ideas on something I'm working on.

Beautiful refinish on the buffet or sideboard! It was originally part of a dining room set, which usually included a table with extension leaves, 6 or 8 chairs and a china hutch.

This tiny Climax deserved to be restored but doing it was tougher than I expected when I took on the job, the cabinet had been repaired before , looked to me it had suffered water damage and was re glued incorrectly meaning the joints were way off and the substrate under the veneer was some what soft. The veneer on the top along the side came wright up and the rounded corner suffered a crack all the way though. The clear coat was very thick also and was hard to remove. The new veneer on the top does not overlap the front leading edges of cabinet and I had to very careful to keep that original look or it would have been a dead giveaway that it was altered , just trying to make it look as close as possible to how the factory done it.The two holes where the handle was were takin care of and with all that stuff going on this little gem of a radio looks great once again and will display nicely in any antique radio collection.

File comment: See the top leading edge I was talking about, its a little darker, that was tough to get the new veneer like that, time consuming.
