After a little more sanding, test fitting, and planning for wires I painted it black. It looks glossy because it’s wet, but it will dry a flat black.

Here's a little about me and my shop.
I have always liked woodworking although most of it was projects done out of necessity with very few (sometimes crude) tools, in a cramped garage.
In the fall of 2003 we purchased a recently built pole barn, and an old trailer house on 6 acres of hardwoods, just 30 minutes north of our home. Finally I would have a place for a shop, and storage for my toys (motorcycles, boat, and tractor.)
Woodworking is my HOBBY, and I hope it's going to stay that way. Over the years I have turned other hobbies into a second job (make money, to further fund the hobby). I have learned that this is the quickest way lose a HOBBY, and gain a JOB. When you have a contracted obligation to do something, you'd better really love to do it!!! I love woodworking when I feel like doing something creative, but I want the option to walk away.
