Here you go.. It does the job but not fancy looking. And is cheap to set it up. The light intensity is strong enough for my Dendrobiums and Oncidiums to bloom.

What you are seeing from the above shot is the back of the light fixture. The encasing is just a plastic storage box. It was like $7 from Lowes. I screw/nut mounted the 4 light bulb sockets to it...is like $1 something each. I daisy chained them with a wire/switch. So that when I turn it on, all would be turned on.

This is the front of it....is currently off now obviously. Is bright..very bright. It lit up my tent inside in additions to my 6 t8 bulbs (4ft). The t8 fixtures are only enough for my other plants inside and my Phal. I have 2 Cattleyas and 2 Dendrobiums and 3 Oncidiums. They need higher intensity light.

FYI, the Dendrobium Frosty Dawn in the back ground is actually about 20" tall....
