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".
