How should I heat it
Getting materials home and anticipation of starting your reptile cage is an exciting time. The will be frustrations to overcome, problems to solve but feeling of accomplishing and achievement you finally get from building something yourself is fantastic.
Every time you go into room and see cages you made you can feel good about them. Sure, you will sometimes get a bit picky about smaller details. What could you have done better, what if you had done this here etc. – well maybe next time.
Some people even use skills they learn to make cages for other people and make a bit of money. Once you have skills and tools it is easy. Even if you don not have all of tools, there are ways around it. You can go to local cabinet makers when you need something cut to size that is too large for you to handle. They are generally happy to oblige for a small fee and you get a perfectly square piece of timber.
On a final note, making your own cages is a fun and rewarding experience and is recommended it to anyone considering it.
