Exceptional work, as always from the workbench of Mr. Ellifrit.   B) 

 

How's it coming along, Tom?   Time for an update?

Wow, this is great, I will keep watching.  What did you use for the light under the over hang?  Also what did you use for the walls?

I'm posting this from work. I have lost internet access at home. When it is restored, I'll start updating. Work on the station continues. All lighting is from LEDs.

Dan, it's like a particle board with two really smooth faces . I's about a 1/4 inch thick and it's used in the exhibit business  for signage .

Amazing! I can barely imagine someone carving those roman letters out of styrene. You have extraordinary skills.

While the walls were drying, i decided to start on the pumps. I want to light them, and save money, so I made my own.

Everything is lighted (or WILL be lighted) with LEDs. I have a 12V power source that can handle hundreds of them simultaneously.
