    It's like a well-built piece of furniture that you see in a museum. Beautiful and elegant.

    My vote goes to this one. Clean and simple, yet not oversimplified.

    I happen to love birdseye, and it looks great. The craftmanship so far is superb. I wouldn't be able to do that in a million years.

    Trying to make a selector-switch plate...That etching process is someting that not always turns out the way you want but this one is decent enough to give it a go.

    Yep, also the plating:

    The etching leaves some pitting but it looks like an old CP so I'm happy. Maybe I'll age it a little more. But I have to see it all put together first.

    Love it! Ok, I'm going to have to apologize. I really don't use this kind of language, but that control plate cover is the shiznit!

    Why did you put chrome on the knobs in the first place?

    Or did you buy those? ;) :lol:
