Has anyone built their own light bench??? With wheels?? I think the big problem would be getting trays the correct size. Anyone out there???

Not sure what you mean by light bench or wheels, but I built a bench and hung lights over it. The standard nursery tray are about 11"x22" so you build the bench 33, 44, 55 or 66" wide. Mine is up against a wall and it is about 44 wide so I can put two trays on it at once.


RE: Building a bench

You mean like this? No wheels but holds 4 trays per shelf.

RE: Building a bench

Macheske, I like your design. I was thinking of building my own as well, care to share your design? I also like how you built the frames to hold several light together and get them wired up. Care to share your wiring diagram as well?
