waiting for the grow to begin
6 Attachment(s)
I'm patiently awaiting the arrival of my "tent" so I can get cracking, but as it's not going to arrive til monday, I got bored...and decided I could maybe make some kind of DIY clone/seedling/propagation/veg box..

things I used -

one old set of IKEA drawers that look real sturdy from outside but the drawer bottoms themselves are 2 mill ply and as such are about as much use as a spliff with no lighter..
a few bits from my local light supply shop cost 2.50 euros - I still need to get the 27 watt CFL - 7 euro (eventually x2 so box cost total will be 19 euros plus whatever cheap fan I can find)
2 brass hooks
lots of nails :)

step 1 nailed the drawer bottoms together to create a "front"
step 2 nailed the drawer fronts to the peice above to create "facade"
step 3 nailed more old bits to the bottom to close off and left gap for cables
step 4 screwed brass hooks into top and side
step 5 assembled light and hung
step 6 made a shelf from what was left that can be slotted into any of the old drawer rungs
step 7 attached magetic door clips
step 8 attach foam or big bag plastic all the way around the "front" so as stop light leaks and to make a leak proof flap for the cable gap (I havent done this bit yet - I decided I needed a spliff :) )

ok so it's no great shakes but you must consider that I'm next to useless with a hammer and that, so I'm quietly pleased - it's ok if you want to have a little chuckle though :)

I'll be interested to see how you like your tent.

I have a HydroHut "mini" which is 39" square by 78" high w/400W light.

lol, mate my Dad always said "I dunno boy, yer cursed with the english hands"

I'm so impractical when it comes to just about anything DIY - maybe I just needed to find my calling :D

I just finished water proofing and light sealing the bottom and rear, I made an electric cables collar from some old pizza boxes, a bin bag and some tape - (LMAO @ myself - I had the theme to the A-Team in my head the whole time..hehehe)

the big bag is "concertina"d inside...and I only used the clean pizza box peices :)

Jamie , I had to double or triple up on the d tape so bright lite wouldn't leak through when I didn't have black duct tape.The box looks good and water sealed .Sg:)
