Here is the setup of the seeding table for the 2012 garden.
The table itself is an old picnic style dining table. I attached two 8 foot studs to each side, with a 4 foot long cross member at the top.
I built a small ledge for the black fixture, which is a dual T5 HO aquarium fixture left over from an old 75 gallon fish tank I had before we moved upstairs. It is fitted with one 5700K (more yellowish) T5HO bulb and one 10,000K (more blueish) T5HO bulb. These were what I used to grow plants in the fish tank, and so far the seedlings seem to be very happy with them.
The white fixture is a $9.99 shop light from Home Depot, fitted with two 48'' GE plant bulbs. It is hanging from a chain which is attached on each side to S-hooks screwed into the cross beam above the table. This allows for adjustment as the plants grow taller.
The lights are plugged into a timer, which is set to be on from 6:30am until 8:30pm.
