Sending photos to Brad of the finished product, it can be linked to Buying from Facebook Marketplace.
The photo of the cabinet is brighter than what it actually is, no flash was used just bench lights.

Hi Rudolph, NICE.
The texture of the surface looks just like a moulded bakelite. not too smooth and very even.
I'll guess you left each coat natural without flatting back.
I'll keep that in mind.
Good Job.
Fred.

Looks great!

Did you use epoxy for the joins? Any reinforcement on the inside? Would like to see indie shots, too.

I used JB Weld, no need for reinforing as it sets like steel, I've proven it over the years, once cured it won't pull apart.

Yep, this guy used it to repair a cracked cylinder head on a mower engine: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aVLoJe3JbFI

I enjoy a challange particularly if the end result is pleasing. I've got a few more to keep me busy and not think about my problems.
