A more stable England upper case

A new back for the upper part of the G P England organ case undergoing restoration in my workshop is now complete and the casework is now much more stable. The larger middle tower cap is now also in place. A few discrete plates and blocks also add significantly to the stability. The left hand tower has three gilded dummy pipes in place - not original at all (and from another organ) but just to give an idea of what it will look like when complete.
The next step is to tackle the lower part of the case - which unfortunately has been rather hacked about over the years and will therefore be a longer job.
