*** Because I'm constantly rudely attacked on pieces like this, please understand that when I take on something it's because it was headed for the dump and would require a hefty ransom to get it back into respectable shape. My mission is to rescue items, not destroy them. I have enough respect for items within the vintage and antique field to only take on items that need an overhaul and have outlived their initial purpose. If you find some aspects redeeming enough, it's only because of the work I've put into it based on how it began. If you still have something negative to say -- do us all a favor and keep it to yourself.
Here's a one-of-a-kind furniture piece made from a vintage Philco AM console radio. The components were gutted (a couple of burned parts/insect chewed bits) and I spent many, many hours sanding and repairing the surface of this scarred and water damaged piece. I incorporated a storage compartment behind the vintage post office door on the left side and created a custom housing for a pair of antique Singer sewing machine wooden drawers on the right side. Up top, I used a large glass reflector housing (probably from an airport?) that I housed in a custom made fabrication of copper and brass old components. At the very top is an old Chrome Packard hub cap. This custom creation is aged to perfection and sealed with Annie Sloan waxes.
Here are the measurements...
Height: 54"; Width (side to side): 30"; Depth: 12".

A lot of time and love went into each one of my pieces. I hope you enjoy it as much as I did making it.
