    Hi Guys,

    Looking to build my own cabinet for my stand, but not sure what wood to use? I have read that Marine Plywood is a good option, is that true? And should it be sealed further? Or is it fine as is?

    Thanks

    I've used marine ply as a base for most of my tanks, it seems to last a few years even when getting wet, although if it remains wet a lot it does seem to start giving way, if you're going to use it for a cabinet then I'm sure some yacht varnish would make it last forever.
