Nick trimmed about 3/4 from the length, a 1/2 off the outer edges, 1/4 from the center seam and thickness planed the German Spruce plates before gluing up the set. This definitely helped reduce the appearance of the 50-years of oxidation. That said, the photo of the raw set (top) has naphtha applied to it which brings out the appearance like nitro will and the process set shown (bottom) was phographed in a dry state which tends to diminish the appearance of these aesthetic artifacts.
