My husband built this tort table for morloch 2 yrs ago, , morloch has outgrown it by far. Lasted about a year. Thinking of selling it or making it into a coffee table. Clean , repaint,,and fill. But my kids think we should make it a morloch museum. Pictures etc. I'm thinking that or a cactus table, any other ideas??? ,,, I've seen some pretty good imagination on this forum! Ideas please!!!

Hi. Too bad we're so far away! I'd buy it off you. Maybe you could use it for a sedum terrarium?

Yes sedum is a plant, it's almost like a cactus (mind is blanking on what to actually call it). They tend to do well with heat and dry. Succulent, that's what they are if my mind is working right. :D

I would use the table as an excuse to get another tortoise! :tort: :D :tort:

Use it like Tom used one of his. He put it in the torts outside enclosure for tort shade, but planted food for them in it. Killed two stones with one table:D

It's a good idea,, but I like the table too much to be weathered.

That is a very good looking tort table. I think it needs a hatchling ;)

Take a high resolution picture of your tortoise. Have it printed on canvas.

Remove the legs from the tort table. Hang the table on your wall and mount the large canvas photo inside what was a table and is now the picture frame. Mount the proper lighting and "voila" you have a life size (or larger) work of art.

Will's idea sound beautiful!

I would use it as an indoor garden to grow edibles for the tortoise.

Yes, they are succulents. Great as tort food, too. They're just like cactus; minimum care.

You can use pond liner or heavy duty vapour barrier to protect the bottom and sides. If you plant sedum, they require very little water, so you don't have to worry about moisture damage.

Just had a close look. The plants you have in there are from the sedum family. [WINKING FACE]
