So this is still a work in progress, but I am VERY happy with the outcome so far
Only thing is that the face on the first pic is the nicest, and it's the back. Obviously didn't plan well ;)
The 2nd pic is the front of this, last one is one side. The other side, not included, is my least favorite, doesn't have much figuring.
It even looks better in person, there is a pretty cool almost 3d holographic effect.
This is the Power supply part of my project, will house the high voltage power transformer, rectifier tube, smoothing caps, and two smaller transformers and associated circuits to generate the raw heater voltage.
I'll build a 2nd box to house the main part of the amp. I already have the piece of curly maple for that box.
Finishing so far has been Dark Vintage Maple Transtint diluted with water. Applied lots of the mixture to the wood, and then sanded down to 320 grit.
Applied one coat Sealcoat dewaxed shellac, mixed 50/50 with denatured alcohol and one coat of Sealcoat at full strength.
I am going to add dovetail miter keys to the corner, and then apply a final finish over the top of the shellac.
