I love building things, particularly electronics. That lead me to building a grow light of my own. I used to be an HID kinda guy; think of High Pressure Sodium, LEC, and the like. LED lighting has never been for me as far as the red, purple, blues (think of Mars Hydro, Black Dog, KindLED, etc) but now, I really think they are. Here is the parts list:
 
It was built using two 5-foot sections of 3/4" angle aluminum to cover a 6ft table. the rest of the stuff is from cobkits.com


All together it costed about 280 before separate tools (hand held hacksaw for the rails and a rivet gun to tack it all together)

Hoping there is a step by step process, with pictures! Been interested in putting together my own system as well but I'm not very handy so a pioneer in this area is well needed!

 

Good luck

Whenever I build another one I'll take pictures and what not. but in the mean time, watch this and everything else by him.

How far do you plan on growing these in this setup?

Til they fruit or until they are sold to the locals haha. The Pueblo Chiles are easily the fastest grower, then the ghost, then the SB7J. Will be adding some different types here soon
