I had painted the wooden case for my controller, and it finished drying today.
I used "Dekorwachs", it needed a long time to dry completly. The water- and dirt-repelling properties
of wax are really good. All in all I am quite content with my build, still there are a few quirks with
the case, like minor gaps due to the wood (spruce-wood tends to "work") and a small break out where
the usb and power plug will sit. Well one has to learn by doing...
As it tunrs out my neighbour used to work in a company with a CNC-mill, I might get the chance of a
cheap and good frontplate.
