Scott, I have an original EH Scott radio cabinet available for your Philharmonic.  Please check your private mail.

Yes, I'd love to find an old cabinet and repurpose it.  I've looked at several and haven't seen one which would really work.

I would also love to see your pictures!

Scott cabinets are scarce now because the number of sets sold exceeded cabinets sold, due in part to custom installations. Now 70 to 80 years later, additional cabinets deteriorated in bad environments like basements.

My pointer Philly acquired 60 years ago in high school spent years as a working "shelf queen" like yours before I found a gutted 1920's Victor Credenza phonograph cabinet big enough to accommodate it. I modified it for the Scott and better housing the speaker for next 40 years. 10 years ago, I lucked into the upsized Scott TASMAN console to restore for it.

Some new Scotts were retro fitted into nice older radio cabinets back in the day to replace obsolete radios.

Don't overlook vintage cabinets worthy of repurposing for a Scott. I rebuilt a mid 1950's Chinese motif Stromberg-Carlson TV cabinet for my 1941 Scott Laureate chassis with 15 inch speaker. With careful redesign, would accommodate a Philharmonic. Top is now hinged. My cabinet exterior is all original, red version. Hand painted doors, with artist signature. Empty black version is on eBay now.      item 184194447675.   take a look.

Contrary to seller item description, I did not put a Philharmonic in mine, but could have with the available cabinet interior depth of 19 inches and width of 25 inches. You or anyone interested in images of my effort, let me know.

Congrats!  Looks great - nice chrome from what I can see.
