When I first started building my enclosure, I didnt have much to go by...
I went through some trial and error with my design and I thought it might be helpful to provide a walkthrough of how I made mine..

Rather then make a long post that could get lost.. I have made a .PDF file ( adobe acrobat ) for anyone to download and view using the Adobe Acrobat Reader ( Free from www.adobe.com )

I hope this is helpful to the first timers and others!

You can download the diagrams and walkthrough here:

Tortoise Table Enclosure Diagrams in PDF

or if you cant get the adobe acrobat reader, and have Corel Draw you can download the file in CDR format here:

Tortoise table enclosure diagrams in Corel .CDR

Thanks for all the help so far everyone. Hope I can give back as I learn more.

This looks great, Blair!
I'm about to head out the door but I will definitely sit down and read all of this later tonight with a cup of tea.
I'm thinking we should have this stickied so its easy to find...

This is a great tool. I will take this up as a project once I finish my outdoor enclosure so that my torts will have a nicer winter quarter than the rubbermaid box. Did you ever have trouble with the plexiglass warping from the heat of the lamp ?
