This weekend i am planning on making a wood hood for my 10g because i dont like how i have my new 2x13w bright kit hooked up to it and i find enclosed wood canopys more attractive. So to protect the wood from warping what should i use to coat it? Can i use clear coat or is there another product i should buy? Thanks in advance.
