    So out of boredom I’m thinking about making an amp with this old Admiral radio cab. It’s solid wood and in good overall shape. A blues Junior top panel fits perfectly where the dial was. Also a 12 will fit perfectly. It’s like it was made to do this. So what looks better the solid front? Top door closed or door off with the TV front? I plan on putting some good finish on the cab and rubber feet and a handle.
