    anyone might be interested in something like this?

    $80 in dark red padauk or light natural cherry, or $40 in aluminum

    By chance do you have photos of the actual front panel on an amp? I think I'd be interested.

    I'll have these in about two weeks, so no photos yet. Can be made to fit anything, but so far I've just ordered a couple for the ST120-ST70 chassis.
    Also may have some done for future SP14 preamps.

    I'd be interested as well in an M-125 version.

    OK, these didn't come out PERFECT, but they look super nice from 12 inches away.  
    I've got two of these I'll let go for $60 each with shipping.
    I'll take orders for M125s but I've got to get the EXACT dimensions to do that.
    This one in the photo is actually 1/16" off center in height, which would look fine with the amp at waist level or lower.
    The other one is perfectly centered.   Also this photo is more color accurate than my first post at the top,
    although you could easily change that with whatever stain you want to use, this is raw Padauk wood, slightly darker and less grainy than Cherry

    two more photos, I was hoping for some better light today, but's it's totally overcast and no sun.
    So the first photo is almost identical to the one above, the second photo shows the backside of the 2nd piece I have,
    which on half of it I put some MiniWax maple satin stain on just because I had some.   Makes the wood much darker and richer looking.
    For you guys that want one for the M125s, I think I'd just have my wood guy cut the blanks for you, and then you can do what I did,
    which is mark and drill to match your chassis.   Start with a 1/16" drill and work your way up.
