Hey, everyone, I hope you're having a great Labor Day weekend! I have taken some time this weekend to finish up some projects . . . including a long-overdo addition of the crown molding to my plywood terrarium. With the recent interest in building plywood terraria, I thought I'd post my (nearly) finished product. It's been up and running for about 19 months now, but the trim is still not quite finished. I have a few pieces of molding to make to wrap around the top, and I'll be making a front opening vivarium that fills the bottom opening. Let me know what you think.





Pics of the building process can be seen at http://www.frognet.org/gallery/album18 .

Looks great Homer. I just hope Mine will turn out to be just as nice when I finish it. I just need to get started on it first though. Their are just so many design features to fiquire out first though, and getting the basic materials to start. Have my 2x4 frames but still need to get my plywood or MDF. Still trying to decide which one to go with. I am leaning more towards the MDF to be honest because it will be alot smother than the plywood and it is also cheaper.

Thanks for the support, everyone! It has housed a nice colony of New River tincs for a little under a year and a half now. The entire front glass sits in a channel, so it's a sliding front opening tank--which is really nice if you can logistically get one to work in an area for you.

This was actually my first frog tank--pieced together from scraps since cash was tight when I was in school--and I made a deal with my wife. She would let me keep frogs if the tank I put them in looked like a natural piece of furniture in the house. Little did she know that the intro to darts would only open the door to several more containers and frogs. :shock: Yup, I was bitten hard, and it hasn't let go yet. :D
