Thanks! Yeah, I figure if the wood could withstand lots of years on the side of some old barn in Iowa, it should do well in the garage. I like the unfinished look but did think originally that I'd add some clear lacquer. I added a string of led lights that change color - my way of adding some bling I suppose - or just guiding me to the taps in a dark garage, like an airplane to the runway. Thanks again for the compliments. Cheers.
