    Good job Tom, looks good. I'm glad to see you managed to build it :D

    Tom, in your video, do the side panels have the thick blue portion removed too, like the bottom, or only remove the blue pieces covered in ink?

    Thanks a lot, great idea!

    Thanks! I wasn't sure if the thick blue region had to be cut off for all pieces or not, just the bottom piece. thanks!

    CD cases enclosures really are awesome, but don't use them to house crickets. I didnt fill the holes well enough and they kept escaping everynight... It was quite troublesome.

    Moderators I think this should be made a STICKY.

    PM the admins or go to the first, original post, click Report Post and in the box that opens, state what you need. This thread should definitely be kept burning. Great stuff.

    Any concern that a T could escape from that? Is it hard to open the top?

    I have been keeping tarantulas in them for over a year and so far non managed to open it. But when you are picking the case for top you need to pick the one that locks tightly. Some can be really loose.

    I'd love to but can't at the moment. Moving into a new place and my computer is in a box somewhere, lol.

    Everything should be back to normal in a couple of weeks. My new T room should be pretty cool when it's all said and done.
