    so the wife has been on my back regarding changing from oak finish to a dark wood. Out came the handyman skills and rebuilt the lid to house the new lights, after two hours of sanding old varnish was removed and new staining started. Indonesian teak was the choice and must say a marine tank just looks amazing in darkwood.

    What you think?? Agree or not
