I started my builds this weekend. Going to build these for a shelf on my rack. More pictures to come.








Let me know what you guys think so far.

Looks good, I built a homemade viv with 1/4 glass and 1/8 doors. I like them nice sliding doors

Put the back half of one of the tops on before work tonight. Notice the hole for the fan to be mounted.

Gotta love it when it passes the leak test! ;)

Looks like you've planned for a top vent?

I plan to have a 3 inch wide vent on top. I may end up closing it off depending on how the humidity looks.

Niiiccccceeee! Good idea cutting the stump in half...it was pretty dense though, how did sawing it go? Orchids look good, when do the rest of the new plants come in?

Sawing wasnt too tough just needed a little sanding to get it right. Waiting to hear when the other plants will ship so thats as much as i know. Going to try and do some planting this weekend.

Progress is always good! I like the square fan in a round housing. ;) What tools/procedure did you use to round off the corners of your fans to get them to fit in the round housings?

Nice shop tool but the handle grips look all wrong. I think I'd have to go with a Newcastle style grip in conjunction with an Odell Cutthroat Porter.

I used a small hand saw, *****, and a dremmel to get the fans right. Those are the same fans you use. I cut everything off except the supports then cut the supports to the correct length. I have a few tap handles. Sierra nevada, dos equis, magis hat number 9, budweiser, coors light. All tap handle donations generously accepted.
