I added my latest layout "Black Sand Beaches of Wainapanapa" to the Gallery. This layout was inpspired by my visit to Maui. While in Maui, I visited Wainapanapa State Park along the Road to Hana.

Nicely done. There always seem to be a lot of questions regarding light stands. This should help a lot in that area

Jason,

A member of my club and myself had done a similar style bar, but with a little more girth to it than the small bars you used.

I used Rectangular anodized aluminum tubes . They even cut them for you to size so you get good clean cuts.

You can also buy the elbow fittings instead of dealing with screws and such.

Here is a picture taken by Jens Rohloff from my club who used the satin finish.


I purchased mine in the black finish. Shipping and price was very reasonable and I got them pretty quick too.

I held up a coralife aqualight pro 48" metal halide fixture with this setup just fine.

Very cool, Glenn. What are those pieces used to attach the wire to the tubing?
