I was considering getting something form the local farm store, and my wife suggested I use my aquarium light. Not a bad idea, if I can figure a way to do it. Well, after working in the garden some, I took a break and decided to work on making a seedling light source. So, I'm looking through the garage and see the pallet boards and a plan was born. Last year, my wife gathered a TON of pallets, and after untold hours of breaking them apart, we have a lot of pallet wood. It is really nice to have it around.
It still needs a bit more work because I'm trying to make it adjustable, but the screws I had weren't long enough to go through 2 pallet boards.
Anyway, I'm very pleased with myself! I'll put the light on a timer and I'll see how it goes.
