They are 3/4" birch ply from Home depot. the front face has birch veneer to hide the plywood edges but the rest of the joints were mitred so I could simply stain the plywood.

* Used 220 grit with an orbital sander on all surfaces

* Applied 2 coats of Watco Danish Oil (Dark Walnut). Coated with a foam brush, wiped off after 15 minutes with a rag.

* applied 2 coats of Minwax Wipe-on poly. Coated with a rag

* applied 1 coat of Minwax Finishing wax

* Buffed out to a semi-gloss finish using an automotive buffer

A step I skipped, was the pre-stain.

Without it, you get some blotches, but the wood takes the color a lot better...and i find the blotches add character.

Immediately, I like them better than my Frugelhorn MK1s. Tons more bass. However there are things the FH1s do a little better. I don't have enough hours on the Pensils to be too critical just yet though. I keep adding stuffing because there is so much bass.

Try pulling them out of the corners and in towards the center a bit more. Nice work BTW.
