Seeburg Jukebox Restoration, Part 5

11 Oct

Remember this from a previous post?

A damaged piece of molding that had to be rebuilt.

Well, as I was installing it, it broke.  I fixed it again, then it broke again.  Repeat 2 more times.  The old wood was just too weak.  So I took a piece of maple, cut and carved an entirely new one from scratch.

Time consuming, yes.  This small piece is only about 5 inches long, but it’s been holding up progress on a lot of other things.

Another task that was holding up progress, and one I had been dreading, was installing the new mirrors on the front door.   But Dave came and gave me a hand or two.

In the above photo, the door frame is not done being repaired, but it gives a good idea what it will look like when finished.

I’m happy to get these two obstacles behind me.

    I’m impressed that you carved your own frame section and it looks perfect!
