I'm one who loves to build things, and always have. it started because we didn't have much money, so I always entertained myself by taking stuff apart to learn, and doing random projects. Naturally, my DIY passion floated over to cannabis growing as well.

I thought it would be cool to start a thread for everyone to show off there most recent, most useful, in-progress, or even epicly failed projects and DIYs.
Some examples:
Grow Cab's, tents or space buckets
lights (diy led, cfl panel, etc)
solutions to common issues (cleaning scissors, reflecting/blocking light, light stand)
anything else you DIY'd

Keep a watch on this brother.. I'll show you guys what I am setting up for my wife as a single plant grow.. basically, getting a casket, stood upright, putting in a hydrofarm 315w CMh in it.. side note, we turned an old transport coffin into a bookcase. Lol.

I've already showed these pics in my thread. It is a great starter box, but I'm already wishing I had more height and floor space. So I'm thinking of making another one for a 315 cmh. From what I've read they kick ass in a 3'x3' footprint. So I'm thinking 3' deep by 4' wide (for a little extra space) by 8' high. With the extra height I could leave some extra space under the floor for a drain system. I only grow inside in the winter, so I have some time to think about it. When I do it I will keep a journal.

Years ago I purchased a pre-hung door for $50, some 2x2 sticks as staple holders, a few tubes of silicone, and a big sheet of plastic.
Took only a few hours to isolate a space.
Has been working great.

The AC was a emergency response to trying to do an oversize flower run in the summer time.
It stands ready, but I plan to never need it.

Nice! this is the kind of thing I could see myself doing. turning a one bedroom into a two or three lol wonder if it brings up the value of the house :eyepiece: is it just me or does anyone else feel the emoji's could be improved? lol for some reason they remind me of construction paper

That extra foot will come in handy keeping equipment out of the way. Are those T8's your using for side lighting?

They're high output t5 2800k. I was running them with the plastic covers off until I noticed some leaves getting damaged. Now with the covers on they're doing ok.
 
Thought it would be rude to have everyone else do all the work :party1:
I threw together a little stand for the one plant I'm doing atm to keep myself sane. There was just an 18" T8 laid across the top of the bucket before this.

It wasn't on at first but I ended up having to put the shade on there pretty quickly, more to protect my eyes than anything. The size of the shade actually worked out well lining up with the bucket top

Here's my portable ac mod

Choose proper fitting and angled 6" duct piece. Use thick foam and Caulk to seal duct in vent opening. Let cure 24hrs. Then use hvac tape (I'm a 3m guy), and tape the shit out of it. Run flex duct from that to your rooms intake fan and allow the intake fan to suck in the cold ac air. Securely tape (hvac tape) the flex duct to your intake fan, leaving 50% space so your fan can still suck in air when the ac is not running. Old pic of my 8k unit.

Kinda crappy pic, but you get the idea.
 
Cool little micro veg. Efficient use of light, and easy access. I say drill a hole and run the cord through the pvc, or just zip tie it to the outside.
Thanks, I actually considered both those options. But I got a little sidetracked, after my adderall wears off it's hard to stay in one room, let alone focus on 1 project at a time. So many shinies to distract me lol

can i have more pics? You said 50% opening so it can still suck air? Pic of that so i totally understand.
And are you running c02?
The other line coming out the back. Is that the heat coming from the ac unit that you are extracting out of the area?
What size ac unit is that and did you find that having it in your room as compared to outside of it, benefited you? Sorry for all the questions but im getting ready to add one of these to my room, and so im very interested in your findings and what you learned about this setup...

I'm not in my flower area to take a pit. It's a 6" duct, taped to my 8" intake fan. I don't run a fully sealed room. I do of sorts. Har to explain. I use a big semi sealed room, with a built flower room with intake /exhaust. And run c02. I use 1 bottle a week at 1000ppm. Don't care if I lose a bit. Yields pay off in the end. I just tape the ac duct to the top of the fan. Like putting a 6" tube I to an 8" tube. I've had it set up this way for 4+ yrs with great results with and w/o co2. I'm upgrading to a Mini-split.

DO NOT BUY ACTIVE air dual hose 14 ac. Pile of garbage. Couldn't get a 3x600 room below 80* ambient. I rock an LG 14k and it works perfect. Even got room to 70* with 3x600 ac hoods.
