  1. You rounded them up, well done!!!!! Tom
  2. Yes, that was one of the most beautiful pieces of walnut I've come across. It went with a matched a pair of VRD's chassis' I built. Unfortunately they got broken up.😪 tk
  3. I'm still around, but haven't contributed to the forum in quite awhile. I have a curly maple NBS case in an antique cherry stain. Last of the NBS casework. Tom
  4. Really like the fabric, did you find it local or order it? t
  5. I couldn't post original pic so I had to change my pic size before attaching. Send me some via email, thanks. t
  6. Finally figured out how to post pics. Curly walnut and curly maple.
  7. I'll give it a try this evening, when I figure out how to do it. t
  8. Doesn't sound too lazy man to me. Poly will give a reasonably hard finish and with a wet sand and finishing with the 0000 steel wool, it will be smooth to the touch. I like shellac, not near as hard as a poly, but will render a fine finish. The other thing about shellac is it plays well with other finishes. Poly is multiple individual layers, where shellac is multiple layers melding into one. I struggled with tung oil at first, but when done right it can give a hard smooth finish. One doesn't fit all, it all boils down to what you what/need from your finish. Once again nice work. t
  9. Very nice work, what type of finish, poly, tung, shellac? t

    "I believe that Hickory is rare", I'm pretty sure they are the only hickory VRD's/NBS cases on the planet, both cases came from the same stock. And yes, it would be a shame to break up the set. Price is fair on both the VRD's an NBS case. Tom
  11. With both phono sections this is a deal. The case work alone is worth over $350. Nice job on the pic.
  12. Most definitely, the one pic almost looks like it could be a blond filler finish. Classic 60's.
  13. Thanks to you, your families an all those who made the ultimate sacrifice, so we can enjoy the good life we have. Tom
  14. Happy birthday Craig. t
  15. Classic, one more example of the few dictating to the many.
  16. Thanks Paul, the grain on this one is very nice, especially with the oil finish. Tom

    Dynaco St 70

    At $475 you can't go wrong. Forte II's and a Marantz 2270 is what started me down this road. t

    For another $100 Forte's or Forte II's will really shine. I think they have the same footprint or close to it. t
  19. Sun Audio http://www2.big.or.jp/~sunaudio/index_e.html I have the SV2A3, built like a tank and has great midrange and fine detail from top to bottom. tk
  20. Ugly can be fixed, cosmetics are secondary to sound. That was a great price for a great preamp. t
