My Granddaughter came to me the other day needing to build a cage for her new gecko!
She brought some “found” plexiglass and a bunch of ideas, hoping I had enough wood and hardware.
After reviewing her ideas and available materials this is what we came up with.
The base is 3/4” AC ply with a shellac finish and the top is made from cedar with 1/2” ply blocks to reinforce
the corners and 1/4” hardware cloth. The sides are 1/8” plexiglass and are screwed to 1” corner blocks and to
a rabbit in the base.
I think that it is appropriate and important that she receives credit for the design and use of materials.
I did help her with a bit of engineering and I made the dangerous (for her) cuts and helped a little with
The gecko is very happy with it’s new home! The only thing left is a good lamp to keep him warm…..........
I think she has her eye on my articulated arm bench lamp!
