when do you think it will be stained?
Not totally sure, probably won't happen this week. I still have to break ground on the canopy. I'm shooting to stain both the stand and canopy at the same time. Not really on much of a time frame or really have a deadline for that matter, didn't want to feel rushed and have the quality suffer. Things will probably continue to move at the same pace. However I don't want to prolong this process too long as I'm doing this a friends house and do not want to hold up his time and space any longer than necessarywhen do you think it will be stained?
What do you mean by the moulding thing? Either way boards were routered, cut to size and attached in similiar fashion to crown moulding.Nice job on the diy molding, or is that moulding.
Really adds depth and a touch of class.
Believe you answered that one. It does add class aye!?What do you mean by the moulding thing? Either way boards were routered, cut to size and attached in similiar fashion to crown moulding.
That it does. Nothing was pre made, as you can see from his documentation, everything was routered and then applied in layers to create the look he was after.Believe you answered that one. It does add class aye!?
Thanks! The canopy will be housing my 48" Current Sunpod fixture that has two 250watt halides and 18 LEDs, nine white and nine blue.that looks awesome, what kind of lights are going inside?
that fixture sounds great! :banana:Thanks! The canopy will be housing my 48" Current Sunpod fixture that has two 250watt halides and 18 LEDs, nine white and nine blue.
The LED idea is interesting, I had never thought about doing anything like that before. The canopy will incorporate four eighty milimeter fans, two on each side. Two will blow into the canopy under the halides and the two on the opposing side will be sucking air out of the canopy.Current rocks. I've enjoyed all 3 of mine!
Hey reefkeeper, check out this LED accent lighting.
Had I used crown molding on my stand, I would've
incorperated this into it, under molding outta site.
at 0.1" x 0.3", and flexible, it's pretty easy to hide.
if you're looking for fans for the canopy
many to choose from. Narrowed mine down to this one x4 for
I have been extremely pleased with the fixture as a whole. I have had it for almost a year and still have no complaints. Originally I was concerend that it did not have anything for actinic supplement such as T5's but the 14k halides turned out perfect for me. I begin my daily light cycle with just blue LED's then, in addition the white LED's come on and finally the halides. Then the cycle ends in the same order, halides go off and the blue's and white's are left on, following the white LED's going off and only blue's remaining. Lastly the tank goes dark for a few hours.that fixture sounds great! :banana:
Thanks for the kind words, I can't wait for it to all come together!Wow Keeper. That's gonna be really nice when it all come together.
Keep that piano hinge oiled
Thanks! I have not incorporated a support to hold the canopy door open yet. I would like to be able to use something like you said such as a shock, almost like they use on cars to hold the hoods up.i like the progress, its coming together nicely! do you have a shock or arm to hold the canopy open?
