    Hello guys!

    I made a quick tutorial on how to make an enclosure using CD cases.
    I think they are, and look awesome :laugh::laugh:
    Its like CD cases were designed for this, everything fits perfectly ^^

    Wow! Those look awesome! I won't being using these for T's, but I will house insects in them. The video wasn't super clear, ("Cut off this part, and this part" etc.") but I can figure it out. Thanks for this!

    Yeah very neat but I also had trouble following that. I'm not too skilled when it comes to DIY projects though so I have a hard time even with clear direction haha.

    Yeah, noted, my friend also me that...will make a picture or two and link it in description for easier understanding ^^

    On a side note, do you had any problems understanding what am I saying? I know my accent and pronunciation are "meh" but wondering how well you can understand me :D

    That's really neat. Might try this.
     
  9. That was INCREDIBLE!!! Perfect for 1"-2.5" "juvy" T's or other insects! You sir, are a genius! Necessity, the mother of invention.

    We, or I at least could understand you perfectly, but I also request a more detailed video.

    This instructional is great. I used to have a small label/distro so I have about 1500 of these slim cases packed away :p

    Im hoping he up's a video that shows how/where to cut. I think his idea is great, and can't wait to try it once I see the cutting.

    I couldn't wait to get home tonight to try this after watching the video yesterday. I had to watch the video a couple of times to figure out the proper areas to cut. It's actually pretty simple after you do it once. Thanks again for the video.

    I made a quick video to show where you cut the bottom, sides and top. The sides snap together, Glue on the base, glue the sides and glue
    on the top. Hope this helps a little.

    Thanks! Been a while since I watched the original video, but I thought the OP didn't use any glue, hmmm
