Valve Radios

Below are some of the many beautifully restored valve radio's that have been completed so far. There are many hours of fine and delicate work gone into these pieces, not to mention the expense. It is a hobby that gives me great satisfaction and enjoyment. There will be more photos to follow in the future so keep and eye on this sight.
