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 ...
