The bottom bucket only needs 2 things, intake holes, and wheels.
Take the lower bucket and flip it upside-down, put the small one on top of it. We’ll use that as a reference to do the intake holes. “
Place marks with the driller, the point is that the small bucket will be at the center, and we have to put the intake holes next to it, it should not shut the holes.
Make holes, plenty of them.
A little more…
Should be ok.
Please take some time to admire our temporary pet, the wasp. His name is “get the fuck out the frame”.
Ok, this should be good.
Now we’re doing the same on the other side.
bzee bzee bzee bzee bzee …
Yeah I’m a perfectionist, I like to have things symmetrical.
Now that we’re at it, lets add marks around the pvc tubes. We’ll need that later.
On both sides.
Now it should look something like this.
We always add wheels to small grow boxes at the lab, it’s quite mandatory actually, as we put the intakes under the bucket, we need some space for air to get in.
Put them in place as reference.
They need to be on a flat surface !
So we had to put them a little at the center, should not impact balance, there will we 10L of soil + water, that’s like 20kg, gravity center is going to be way down the bottom of it.
Now glue them in place, start by putting glue under the wheel, then add more around, that should be way enough for the purpose.
And here we are !
We’re getting really close to putting some sweet babe in there :P
Now we’ll use some foam to do lock pads for the small bucket, to prevent it from moving once in there.
Use a pen to draw a shape that would fit the purpose.
We make 2 pads per pvc tubes, but the small bucket should be able to fit between them, read forward to get a better picture.
Cut some foam at the right size.
We want to place them so that the hole is on the edges.
Ok now it’s time to glue them in place.
Apply glue and place them. Remember that they should be placed with the hole on there edge.
Both pvc tubes should fit between the foam parts.
