The height of the light, was limited basically by the materials I ended up using. The balsawood was cheap enough to play with, and decide if I liked the layout/functionality/looks of the structure. If I didn't like the outcome, I wouldn't be out too much money, and was able to spend an afternoon creating something.

When the light sinks deeper into the hood, it gets closer to the substrate and waterline. If I wanted the clamp light more hidden, I suppose a wider board could have been used, but it didn't necessarily worked with my budget here.

Thanks for the feedback.
