What timber is my interior joinery?


Recommended Posts

Not too clued up on timber types but need to do some woodwork inside my 1983 Lotus 9.2.

Any thoughts on what I'm dealing with? Looks like oak to me but not sure that's very commonly used.

Looks like mahogany to me

although fresh machined timer has a very red colour to it over the years U V bleaching tends to take it into that oak or teak like coloring. Sadly any new work will be a much more red colour for a period. We often use yellow stains to help blend new timber with existing

If it's the hole around the radio I agree the Fusion insert works very well, that was this afternoon's task. Swapped out old car cassette player for RA60. Insert  made it easy and tidy.

I've got a dead car radio from tge 90s. What is RA60? What are people using these days?

Mate, you need an Fusion RA770.

Don't short change yourself with RA60 you'll regret it. 

"I only need a RA60!" - said no ketch owner ever!

I looked at that link and can't even figure out what it does. does it play cds?

No. Sounds like it's time to convert your CD collection to digital and get rid of that dead weight.

That's nothing, there are boxes of vinyl in our storage unit.

 

We've been playing Spotify since discovering it about a year ago, played from the tablet to a Bluetooth speaker that gets moved around as required. So the car radio isn't doing a lot.

Angela won't let them go, Juan Luis Guerra, Tonia La Negra, Paloma San Basilio. If you tell me you know them I'll be astounded.

But now you know why people don't anchor too close to us (or why we don't anchor too close to Booboo🤣🤣).

Wish I had known. There was some world class mexican music trapped in nz earlier this year. Shes coming to sing at Angela's mum's 100th birthday in 6 months. That's why we're keen to be able to travel by then.

The other fun thing is trying to translate the lyrics.  They tend to be overdone and flowery and don't always translate well.

Like this

 

The song is called Love Bubbles and my best guess at one verse is

I want to swim up your river and blow love bubbles.

 

(Have we hijacked this thread? I was looking at the interior photos to find a colour for our upholstery that goes with varnished wood.)
