That style, yes. It's not very old, probably 1920's.

This is my chair that has been refinished. Hand carved, 1860's-70's. It was very dry and there were old metal braces everywhere holding it together:




The middle chairs are 18th century Italian chairs:



I also do platform beds/headboards:



And a before and after on a free sofa we did for my brother:




I think I've posted some of these before. I take a lot of pictures of work stuff, just don't post it too often.

Amateur radio receiver/transmitter. Yes, I'm the dorkiest member here. I love old vacuum tube stuff, they remind me of my dad when he was an electronics tech in the USAF. This particular make/model set was, at the time in 1960, considered the Cadillac of radio rigs. It was built at still-implemented WWII mil-spec guidelines and can take an ass-whoopin' and still operate. They're still highly collectible today.

On the left is the receiver cleaned, realigned and re-capped, the right still dirty and nasty after both of them sitting in a shed for 32 years. This radio set originally belonged to the Jefferson Parish, LA Civil Defense.

I wish I knew more about old receiver's and tube amps and shit. That stuff looks like fun, and tube amps ftmfw. I wish I had a nice mid 70's hifi unit fro marantz or something. That shit brings some serious bucks nowadays though.

If you know how transistors work, you know how vacuum tubes work. The base of the trans is the grid, the collector is the plate and the emitter is the anode. Everything else in theory is the same, caps and resistors etc. Basic circuits are still the same, just with enhancements or mods. Of course tubes were used before ICs, microprocessors etc and the circuity was much simpler then, for better or worse.

I love the smell and the warm glow in the winter. A couple of old Fender tube amps and a shot or so of your favorite bourbon can warm the place right up.
