    The electron gods left a box on my porch.

    I got so dang excited I forgot to take a picture of it.

    Pine, cherry, maple and walnut.

    Smells good, really good.

    Thank you gentlemen.

    The sanding is done and the first two coats of finish are on.

    Looking better.

    Turret board laid out and staked.

    I've marked most of the holes in the chassis and the transformers have been painted.

    I bought the cabinet off of the bay. My third from seller named "tubeampcabinets."

    Super sexy cab. Just be careful with it or you will be shouting "Oh the Scratch! The freaking Scratch!"

    Actually they are scavenged from a butalized Pilot 903.

    I'm almost positive a previous owner deliberately sprayed over their boogers.

    What a mess.

    I did get the idea from edcor.

    I'm a little surprised no one has asked what circuit I'm building.

    Have all the eagle eyes made their decision from my layout?

    Honestly, I was going to ask earlier today. My eyes are not Eagles yet. I started to cipher the layout but had to get back to work abruptly.

    All of the six-thousand holes are drilled.

    Sockets, pots, jacks, etc mounted.

    Faceplate cut, painted, dried and installed.

    Chassis holes drilled in the cab.

    A quick mockup for y'all.

    Please excuse the mess in the laboratory.

    Thank You, good Sir!

    We will see.

    I'm repurposing giant transformers, not sure what to expect.
