And so it begins...
its gonna be a double?
Cant wait. If there were a way to frame your enclosures and hang them on my wall i would matt... and that is coming from a guy that makes furniture for a living lol
What kind of wood you using?
I agree. Matt makes some sweet enclosures.
Looks like birch plywood back and maple or soft maple framing.
Looking forward to the progress.
Yes he does amazing enclosures
Thanks for the kind words, guys. Like my other enclosures (birch ply and poplar face frame) this one will be a stack, but there will be/are a few design tweaks here and there. Size wise this set measures at 48x32x23 (WxDxH), which is 8" deeper than the others. The bottom enclosure will employ a feature that will allow the animal(s) to use a sub-terranian section for burrowing and nesting. Both the top and bottom enclosures will also receive radiant heating via heat tape/cord/mat (not sure which I'll use yet). I'm currently up in Massachusetts for the week for work so I'll have to wait until Friday to get more work done, but they should be complete by weekends end, assuming my plexi gets here in time.
Not shown are the lower doors (waiting for hinges) and a burrow box (built, but not installed).
Just a matter of electrical, paint and BGs now...all the fun parts.
could i see a pic of your burrow box and an idea of where you put it if possible of course
Yeah, I'll grab a shot of the box in position this afternoon.
Looks fantastic as always. I'm very jealous of your ability to make everything look beautiful. You have a gift.
I wish I had that type of skill - quite fond of the design and the way you've made it all look. Those uro's sure will enjoy it.
That looks great, bro. Very nice. If you don't mind me asking, where did you get those hinges for the glass?
Thanks for the kind words!
Moski, they are called pivot/glass door hinges--you can find them online at Amazon, McMaster Carr, etc etc.
Thaboi, here is a shot of the burrow box...
And it'll be mounted directly below the two tiles you see here...
And what I was doing today....
Electrical! (incomplete, of course)
Thanks Vers. I appreciate it.
Ah I see very nice and I'm guess theres some sort of entrance on the side leading to the enclosure correct
There will actually be an entrance from the top, through the floor of the enclosure...just have to cut a hole in one of the tiles.
Oh ok thats pretty cool
Another amazing masterpiece you have going! Cant wait to see it finished!!
I got the top enclosure all wired up and made a reflector for the CLF this afternoon--should be able to bang out a lot more tomorrow after work.
