6 years later...

I finally got around to dismantling this to clean it and get it ready to restore and put into some sort of function.

I googled how to clean veneer, not difficult, but I do have a question about a crack in the base.  Not wide enough to get glue into the crack, so I'm wondering the best way to prevent the crack from spreading.  The only other part in the wood case that needs attention is a separation on the left side.  That will not be difficult, I can get it just far enough apart to get some glue in there.  Question is, which glue would be best, super glue or regular wood glue?

Also discovered the handset was disconnected.  Where exactly is it supposed to be wired?
