His name is Harry....

Well, I guess it's time I do another build thread.
I recently was given a need to build another stand so, what the heck. Remembered I had some left over wood laying around in the garage so figured I would used that for the frame work.


For this build, I would need 2 overhead lights so this is what I came up with...



(sorry for the sideways pic...

Basic framework is done.


Start of the trim work...


Some of the internal controls...


Pretty much finished the construction...


And finally stained.


And the new resident :-)


Of course, this will only last about 1 year. Then the stand will go to the other daughter for her planted 20 long :-)

I used to raise baby dragons about 20 years ago.

New stand is awesome!

Best guess is 8 to 10 weeks. I do know he is 17 grams.

Lol, sorry but no. Not Callahan.

Actually, as the story goes... (using my best british accent)

Sorry, daughters humor.

Nice job on the stand! I like the single door with the three drawers, gives it a very nice look.

Did you make the doors/drawers? Always wanted to try that.

Either way, you have some very good skills there.

@Maryland Guppy, according the the Inkbird controller, where Harry is runs between 95 and 103 degrees. Too hot for me, but he seems to like it.

@Greggz, I did not make the actual oak door or oak drawer fronts. I did make the drawers and installed drawer slides. The door has pocket hinges installed. And thankyou for the compliments. Guess I just like building things :-)

Recipe for a quarantine tank: 5-15gal aquarium, no substrate, a heater that can heat the tank to 86F, "lights should be turned off", one - two mesh bags of biological medium, two small sponge filters, an air pump running into the tank powering the sponge filter. Lid is optional but you should be able to cover most of the tank to prevent fish from jumping out.
