Default mMar-kel70 build

After browsing this forum for half a year I finally made them.

Very pleased with the result, they both sound and the looks great!
Currently debating on whether I should finish them in gloss black or just clear coat them.
Just wanted to share the build and the finished product, hope you enjoy!

Malli,

Congratulations on completing a very nice build. My vote goes to the clear coat.

More ideas on this page:

BTW, enjoy these and afterwards if you fancy (and space allows), build the deci-size Mar-Kel70 - you will be pleasantly surprised.

another vote on the nice job - for my money, a nice sanding, easing of the edges and clear coat looks just fine

unless you are a professional finisher, attaining a decent gloss black paint job on plywood is a royal pain in the azul
