Custom National Glenwood 90 Build

click picture for large view

Here's an interesting project that came through my shop!
A client had purchased a Vintage National Glennwood 90 that was haphazardly housed in a home made head box.
My client wanted a new combo cab that was somewhat like the original but a little custom too.
He also asked me to take pics so him & his father could watch the build in action.
