Being into woodworking, I've been a fan of Izzy Swan (Think Woodworks) for some time.
In his latest project, he built a nice grow table for microgreens and/or sprouts with adjustable-height lighting. He uses almost exclusively dimensional lumber and plywood, so construction is cheap and efficient.
From what I gather, he mainly wanted to keep the lights optimally close to the plants, but he found in the end that being able to get the fixtures out of the way made watering a lot easier.
Well, I hope you all find this as useful as i did. :)
Wow! He really knows his stuff (loved the wooden dinosaur in the intro!!! ) I wish I had his shop, I might try this. As is, I would be doing it outside with makeshift tools so I'm not sure it is worth it. I guess I will have to stick to my plastic shelves and grow lights adjusted by hanging them from wires. Maybe someday ...
She'll be back. I'm just gonna wait here. With this tiny ad:
