Hey everyone, I decided to post up a DIY drip table. I made a few of these and they are super cheap and easy to make. Took my not so young and spry self less than an hour. I will be running 4" RW cubes on Uni-slabs. Hope someone finds this helpful.
Material list (for one table).
1-Sheet 3/8", 4'x8' OSB Ply
6-2"x4" stud (7 if you bigger than 3'x5')
1-Stick of "k" style white vinyl rain gutter
1-"K" style down spout adapter
1-Box 3" wood screws
1-Box 1-1/2" drywall screws
1-panda film ( I buy rolls, so a 10'x10' single will cover 2 tables)
You can build as big as a 4'x8' table with the material.
First, build your frame using 3" screws, remember to subtract 1.5" when cutting your center brace and ends.
Second, screw your OSB to the frame using 1.5" screws (cut the OSB to whatever size you need).
Third, attach your legs with 3" screws, I used 3 legs on each side cut to 24".
Fourth, cut 2 pieces of the "K" style rain gutter (in my case 14.5" each) to accommodate the down spout.
Fifth, cut the 2"x2" for your sides and attach using 3" screws. I had already mounted the drain at this point. i figured it was fairly self explanatory.
Finally, I know you are ready for the end! Attach the panda film using a staple gun and you]re set!
I'm sure I may have left something out, and am most certainly not the first person to do this. But as I said before, I hope someone finds this useful. I just feel the cost of trays from the hydro shops are way too pricey for my method. As a note I do have a small 2'x4' tray that I use for veg. These tables will be for flower.
