I like to think of myself as a handy person, not shy of wrecking some stuff to find the right solutions, much in like many of us here. I don’t know if its the thrill of the chase or whatever but as soon as I finish one, I start another. I’m addicted.
Every time I see a new (to me) piece of growing tech, I scratch my head a bit and say to myself “I could make that!”. From renovating my growspace to modifying AutoPots, building vertical farms, Drip to Drain, Flood to Drain, Aerocloner systems, assembling LED arrays you name it if I haven’t already, I likely want to build it.
I wanted a spot for cheap buggers, hacksmiths, tweakers to share their creations, discuss challenges, and celebrate building things with our hands!
So the question is: What is the DIY build you are most proud of and why?
Here are some of my most recent builds. I have been playing with microsystems mostly for seedlings/cuts ATM but hoping the lessons learned lead to some systems for wee lil Autos in the near future.
Super excited to see what you are building!!
Micro soilless Dip to Drain
Not so micro Flood to drain in a DIY rack farm!
7’6 X 4’ 600+w LED Array
So far the toughest was the Lights, I will be most proud of the AeroCloner when I finally have a big enough pump to complete it but so far I am most proud of merely getting grow my space together. The added bit of time and care seems to be paying off and I am always working to improve it.

Thanks for stopping by, looking forward to more building inspiration
