This was a pretty simple design to allow my wife to start her plants early in the spring. Made from western red cedar. Lights are from Home Depot with mirror reflective surface—approx $50 each. Grow bulbs extra. Lights are suspended by chains to allow height adjustment. Support boards are loose 1×6 to allow for easy cleaning. Casters on bottom permit easy moving outdoors on nice days and back in at night. Commercial version of these are about $300 and niot as functional.

I have looked into building one of these in the past. Yours is nicer than the one I found then, online. Well made, and good looking, too. Thanks.
