Repurposed Vintage Philco AM Console RadioJuly 5th, 2012 in member junk
I had a lot of fun with this project. I started by gutting the inside and then cutting away certain panel sections to make room for the vintage post office box door, the sewing drawer setup and the old instrument panel. After creating a compartment behind the post office door with the bottom of a vintage tacklebox, I customized a housing for the sewing drawers. I used an old (airport I think) glass light fixture with a custom light housing I made from copper and brass parts. Then came the fun part with paint. I used ASCP. It's seems so funny when doing projects like these when you work so hard to paint all the colors and sub-colors on JUST to sand and beat them back off. Anyway, I finished up with some dark and clear wax. This old console radio can't carry a tune anymore, but it can now house a lot of goodies!
