    Was cold out so we built it inside... Now I have saw dust every were...

    1 Shelf, there are 2 more just like it.


    The shelf unit finished - Looks crooked, it probably is, but not that bad.


    And finally, full of plants.


    Total build time, 4-5 hours. While drinking, and entertaining my buddies kid. 2 people working on it, and a kid getting in the way.
    Oh yeah, we also stopped to light some fireworks..

    Great job Gawd! Want to build me one? [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile_n_32.gif[/img]

    I'm seriously challenged when it comes to building anything, so I stick with store-bought items only. Hahaha!

    If not more, It probably weighs close to 100 pounds.

    2x4's were over kill, the next time I build one, it'll be with 2x2's. (some wishfull thinking) I still have one shelf to fill on this one. I need to buy the lights for that shelf yet as well, but it's nice to have everything off the floor.

    Gawd_oOo,

    Nice shelf. Your approach is similar to mine. Mine is made out of 2x4 also and it is heavy!

    LLeopardGGecko,

    It is not challanging to build a simple shelf. I'm certainly not the most gifted person with tools either. I focus on two things: function, and the end product has to be sturdy. It may not be the most attractive thing in the world, but if it works, I'm happy.

    My motto is: if it wiggles, keep adding screws until it stops wiggling.

    Very nice shelf!
    It is hard to always be a human being... people get in the way.

    Thanx, guys.

    I was thinking of covering the 4 sides with plastic (that clear stuff you shrink onto the windows in winter), but leaving the top open.The front would just drape down, I could fold or roll it up for access to the plants. I am thinking that would raise the humidity some, possibly temp as well.
    Any one try something like that, and care to share the results?
