Introduction: Lamp-holder for Fluorescent Lights
wood,, saw, 4 screws, glue , putty, color, imagination
I received a fluorescent lamp to my small plants and had nowhere to hang the lamp. So this is a design that allows you to raise the light as the plants grow . And the lamp works as a table lamp aswell when you need good light for you other projects

Step 1: Model in Sketchup
I made a model in Sketchup, and you can use any measuremente you need for your lamp. Just check the hight and width you´ll need. You need two pieces of this one.
Step 2: Draw on Wood
Choose your wood and draw the outlines of the lamp-holder. I used plywood since I already had a long piecethat was already 10 cm wide
Step 3: Grind, Grind, Grind :)
Grind until you are satisfied with your holder.
Step 4: The Foot
Pre-drill two holes in teh bottom piece and put a little glue and put the two pieces together with two screws. It does not really matter where you place the base , fluorescent lamp will provide support to the construction
Step 5: Paint
I painted mine white. And now I just wait för my plants to grow :-)
