While I was shopping for a Grow Light, I realized that with a Grow Light, a few sun loving flowering plants could grow on the balcony. Very exciting!
There is a very nice store near Guava Gardens that is a combination lumber yard and hardware store. It's name is Dixieline, and I like this place a lot.
After thinking about a bench for the Grow Light for several days, yesterday I prepared a shopping list and drove over to Dixieline to buy the lumber and hardware for this project.
The top of the bench is made from two 3/4" x 10" wide pieces of lumber which I plan to glue together. Gluing requires some pressure to keep glued surfaces together and to insure a good bond.
In the pic below, you may see my solution to the pressure problem.
