    Swords, I am constantly impressed by your advice and techniques. This diy pictorial is top notch!
    Please, don't stop here, take us through the rest of the project step by step as you have.
    I know many will appreciate it greatly.
    Good growing, Jack

    Thanks Jack, I will be posting some more step by steps projects off and on as I need to construct a few other grow areas during the long cold winter. In spring will come the fun part of starting to order plants to go in the various enclosures. So basically don't expect any real exciting eye candy pics for a while. I'm antsy to start decorating too but winter is here and the plants are there...

    By the time I get to the orchid show in late January I'll probably go wild at the vendor booths and buy up a buttload of miniature plants. I have to work overtime all of January I'll feel like I owe it to myself! lol

    Nicely done swords. I'm glad everything worked out, barring the cuts and scrapes.

    Have any pics of your lighting canopy, or have you not finished that piece yet? From the way you talked about it, it sounds custom or at least modified if it contains a fan.

    Yes, I haven't put that together yet. It will be a modified canopy, holding a gigantic 125W horticultural twisty CFL and a 4" fan to pull out the hot air. I think that lamp should be good enough I have a 125 that is pre-built into a reflector housing - I don't wanna use that one but it works good as a test.
