I was hired to repair and finish out this hard to find Zenith tombstone 10s130. We all now this model is a hot one, everybody wants one including me. You can see where the water level was, 3 or 4 inches covered in water. They are hard to find and pricy. This cabinet was not beyond repair and cleaned up real nice I must say, Had to make a new bottom shelf and re veneer both sides and the front control panel/ speaker area in walnut. This one had photo finish on the upper R&L corner shoulders so I installed some real burl walnut veneer in its place. Sure looks nice, customer will be very pleased I'm sure. Before & after pictures Thanks for looking Fred Taylor

Fred,
Another beautiful restoration!
I love seeing the before and after pictures of these cabinets! I just wish you'd do a video on one of these.

Excellent, as usual! Perhaps the nicest Zenith cabinet.

I am continually offering my shipping address, in order to relieve you of these monstrosities, but you never take me up on it... :wink:

For the level of skill you provide, I think I'd need a second mortgage to cover it... :wink:
