I build my hoods too. This is the one over my 135 gallon viv. Its built out of 1/2 sanded plywood and pine. It sets on the to of the tank and bolts to the plastic lip.

It is hinged in the back with a 72in piano hing. It works well, but it is kind of heavy to lift. All the balast and controls are in the stand below.

Hood open:


Controls:

I found a company that does solid state interval timers, similar to what you described and had planned on ordering one, but never got around to it. If you can get a schematic and parts list that would be great. Thanks.
