Cabinet finishes
« on: March 23, 2016, 09:37:13 PM »
Does documentation exist that shows the different finishes (in color) used on Magnavox cabinets?  Sable walnut, fruitwood, ebony, antique ivory, natural walnut, colors like that.  Some of these colors are Magnavox creations and may or may not be "natural" wood finishes.  If a person needs to refinish a cabinet, and wants to get the color pretty close, this might be essential information.
I don't need Google.  My wife says she knows everything.

I have not seen any.
This would certainly be a valuable resource to us as far as restorations go.

That's not to say that there isn't something like this out there.
I imagine that if something like this does exist it would have been for dealers to show potential buyers.

One possibility that springs to mind is that this might be something that we as a group could compile by taking photos of our consoles, along with the build tag that shows the color code, and uploading them here.
