How about a "show us your custom canopy" contest??

hi there everyone...i am actually new to this forum and i wanted to see all the talent that are out there. I just wanted to see all of the custom canopies (made by yourself and not "custom" bought) to see what ideas everyone has. I am planning on building one myself and just wanted to get some ideas...Now lets show us them canopies!!!

mine was home-built, but not by me. I bought it from the guy :) I would be happy to take some pictures of it when I get home for you, if you would like.

The down side is, my canopy has seen alot of years and the wood is warping quite a bit in some spots. Its a great hood! its just the years have taken a toll... im sure with the VHO bulbs that it originally had there was a tremendous amount of heat and humidity that worked its magic. I will be following this thread closely as well, and in time when I have worked enough wrinkles out I will try to build my own!

Ok there is mine, it is wrapped in Italian suede, and the door is Italian leather with a snake print. I have two 2' fluorescents inside there.

My DIY hood for my planted tank power compacts and cold cathode moonlights.

This is how I lurk
