This is a fairly simple project that takes a standard, inexpensive, household fluorescent fixture and turns it into a portable, switchable fixture. In essence, all you’re really doing is adding a switch and a plug to an existing fixture as opposed to hard-wiring it into a building. These same principles apply to a fixture of any size. In my kit I have a 2-foot single fixture, a 4-foot single fixture, and a 4-foot double fixture, all modified by connecting a switch and a plug to make them portable.
The final fluorescent fixture.
