And there was light…

Well, almost…

A couple bumps in the road along the way.  First I never bothered to measure how long the light fixture was, I just thought it would fit on my craft table.  Guess what?  It’s too long.  Good thing I had an extra PVC pipe!

So after pulling the craft table out and finding the longer one out in the garage (that overhangs the doorway about 6 inches) I have my grow light stand.

Very simple to do.  I used 3/4” PVC.  Just measure how big your light fixture and table are to figure how much you will use.  You also need 2 “T” joints and 2 elbows.  Mine stands about 30” tall.  I need to get some more chain as it’s not quite long enough and I want to get some rubber stoppers to put on the leg ends so they are more level because of the “T”.  Then I need to get two light bulbs, one hot and one cool and my grow light will be good to go (just don’t use that doorway for a while).  Winking smile

Until next time – Happy Gardening!  Sun
