I'm not sure which direction I want to go for filtration. In my other Chi, I've got an AC20. I had a pc of glass cut at Lowes to act as a cover, which DID help with evaporation quite a bit. I was going to talk to my dad tonight back home, to see what he'd recommend finishing this wood with. It's cheap, I've got more time invested in it, than dollars at this point. That's what makes it cool to me I guess

Are the metal brackets sitting on the edge of the glass?

PS: Clean the computer screen.
Yes, right now the metal brackets are sitting on the edge of the glass. computer screen is always like that. I clean it one minute, I turn around, and it's back to being dirty...

Thanks for the feedback.
