Pics of DIY light fixtures/housings

I've got a ballast, bulbs, reflectors, end caps, everything. Now I just need to build the fixture. I do not want to go the hood route, but I need a housing for the bulbs (2). I could make it out of:
  1. Wood: Totally customizable. Needs paint/finish. Good light spread. Heavy?
  2. Vinyl Gutter: Super cheap, light, waterproof. Ballast would have to be hidden. Poor light spread for two bulbs. Looks?
  3. Metal: ???


Please post pics of your DIY fixture or housing. Thanks!
