I finished setting up our RTs new tort table. It's 6ft by almost 3ft. The left-hand side has a built in hide box that is 1 ft deep.

It's built of oak and oak ply, vinyl floor, flagstone for basking. Substrate is 4-5 inches of coconut coir w/ playsand (deeper in the hide box - 7-8 inches). There's a plastic box with organic soil that I put some seeds in. The water dish is the bottom of a bought pie. :)

I planted some pots with real plants: a jade plant, a spider plant, a prayer plant, and a Christmas cactus, as well as some little succulents from our garden. I fully expect them to be nibbled on, and am ok with that...

The torts moved in this evening, walked around a few times, then dug in and went to bed.

Our friend who built it is going to build a dresser to go underneath, too. I'm so happy to have a 'pretty' tort table now... we figured, the torts will live for the rest of our life (and beyond?), so their enclosure shouldn't be an eye sore...

Ok, I just posted a 'tour' of the new tort table on our tort blog. The link is below, in my signature. :)
