The 10W I got from amazon. 32 dollars, I believe? And the 20W I had to order from Ali Baba express. It's basically an set up for international purchases. I had to sign some customs forms for a package coming in from China. The single 20W LED emitter is about an inch in diameter! A LOT of light.

I finished glueing the butcher board about half an hour ago, and I stained a couple pieces of practice wood. The practice wood is to figure out which exact stain/mix of stains I want to use, and how many coats to put on there.

Also, yes, the flood light just comes with bare wires. Just pick up a small junction box at Home Depot, to make your wiring connections in, and use wire nuts + electrical tape.
