Default Re: A Hopeless Mahogany Case ?

Right enough, Dave, some boxes & cabinets do require extreme measures. Thankfully this case was structurally sound, with just one corner of the bottom half needing partially gluing, G clamping, and pining of the lovely mortice & tenon joints. For ease of sanding down the top & the bottom, I removed all the brass screws(which were re-polished), and worked on them separately.
I'm intrigued, Dave, as to which "AVO" box you worked on ? The biggest I've seen is an ex military AVO 2Panel Valve Tester box. Weighed a ton.

Regards, David
