Default New Sansui 9090/8080/990 Real wood case

Built the templates and started making new real wood cases for the Sansui 9090/8080/990 series Receiver's. Here's a couple pictures. Got a lot of time in these. I corrected all factory measurements that were not even close. Fit is not loose and mounting hole placement is on the money. Doing these in Mahogany, African Makore, and figured Maple.

Hmm... not necessarily They really are nicely made by the way as are your others.

You might get more interest if you mention whether they are one offs or are you offering them for sale or perhaps sharing the construction details.

Very nice non the less. You could post the pictures here, I think they qualify if you read post #1

I made router templates for the sides and a template for the rear cut out for the grill. This is so I could make sure each one came out the same, and fit would always be correct.
I make these to sell for $175.00. Have a lot of time in the finish work.
Make these in figured Mahogany, figured Maple. finishing two in maple right now. Have one in figured Makore done.
I am also at Audiokarma in Barter town.
