    Are those EICO or custom cabs? I'm assuming the latter; I've never seen these components in wood before and I can't imagine it would be a good idea to run tube components with no air circulation. And what's the white surround on the faceplate?

    Still confused as to how advisable it is to enclose a tube component in a wood cabinet with no vent holes, especially since the original cases were perforated metal.

    It's not a great idea unless the enclosure and the component therein are designed for proper convective cooling. The cabinets in question dont' look like a good idea to me... but they're easily removed (or, for display, just leave 'em on).
