 Nice.
 
 I  think  it  will  look  better  with  the  plastic  pipes  gone!
 For  the  power  supply,  pull  it  to  the  rod  and  then  run  the  wire  along  its  length...

 @Amit  Ghosh   &  Deathstar
 Thanks  a  lot  for  your  appreciation  .
 As  far  the  material  concerned,  i  tried  with  the  items  readily  available  in  any  hardware  shop  .
 for  the  frame  :  used  6inch  ply
 for  the  cover  :  Metal  sheet.
 For  light  :  2  x  36W  PL  light  .
                        2  ballast  
 Whole  structure  can  be  dismantled  when  needed  as  it  does  not  have  permanent  joint.
 
 @jack86  :  thanks  a  lot  and  you  have  correctly  pointed  out  the  plastic  pipe  .  need  to  do  some  improvisation  on  that  part  .  also  the  wiring  part  too.
 
 Hope  that  helps  you  all   Very Happy  
 
 Cheers   Drinking  
 Srab

 the  stand  looks  good,  srab   Thumb Up  
 
 if  u  could  put  the  wire  in  the  rod,  as  jack  suggests,  it  would  take  it  to  a  different  level  altogether.  
 
 did  u  have  to  bend  the  metal  sheet?  never  saw  any  being  sold  in  that  nice  arch.

 Thanks  a  lot  Romi  .  Smile  
 I  need  to  work  on  the  electrical  part  ...will  update  once  done  .
 The  metal  sheet  does  not  come  in  arch  ...can  be  bend  easily  .
