I needed to create a roof for my shroom fruiting box to provide fresh air and blue light. All LED strips are 12V, and go to one end of a Kobiconn 163-4021 panel connector. The wood was too thick for that connector, so I reduced the thickness with a 13/16 forstner bit. The other photo shows the 12V fans, wired to a CUI PJ-202AH connector which I had to mount to a small piece of fiberglass, which is then mounted on little standoffs. The same CUI PP3-002A plug will mate to both connectors.

I created a strong table because the old card table was not strong enough for the new shroom fruiting box that features a 5 gallon water reservoir (more on that, later). I used mending plates for most of the fastening:

I am LOVING rm-improved. It is so simple and so needed. Think trash-cli but with more options

Anyone know of a list of hardware that can be run with 100% open source software/firmware? I'd love to build a computer with those pieces :opensource: :openhardware:

Prototyping surface mount hardware is intimidating at best. This guy featured on Hackaday has been there, done that. I really like his modified exacto tool for scratching copper from PCBs. And check the comments here, also. Expertise is everywhere you look.
