i have no shop,shed or storage area so all my power tools end up in my room.i also do most of my work in my room as well.sometimes i stay up way to late doing some tinkering project.you know how it goes with DIY peoples.well anyhow picked this board up and mounted it to the wall above my bed.now i can look at all the stuff i own as if i could purchase it all over again right before bed.its like a mini store in my room.sweet.

after cutting the apropriate number of board at the proper lengths i predrilled some pilot holes and bored them out for the screws.

i am going to use a plastic gutter to act as a fixture to hold the flourescent and PC bulbs.the gutter is weather resistant,colored white for refelective properties,heat resistant, and CHEAP.i have made a couple of these and they work out rather well if you dont already have more powerfull lighting.i ususaly do an 420nm actinic flourescent tube combined with several 6500 k compact flourescent bulbs for oomph.they work great on heavy planted fresh water tanks too.now i got to get some pictures up.be patient.

yeah, it took me a while to spot the rain gutters in use as lighting hoods and trickle filters at your place, they really do a great job and look semi professional.
