My college-aged son got a bearded dragon from a fraternity brother. The existing cage was too small and after a little research we found out the best size for a full grown adult is 2’ x 2’ x 4’...so we built it over Xmas break. It was wonderful working with my son for the few days we were in the shop; that happens so infrequently.
He wanted a front opening cage so I cannibalized a glass table-top for the door. I had some old 8/4 white oak sitting around on the shelves and I bought a couple of 2×4s from Lowe’s for the base.
I believe this was his first project that I left him in the shop alone for any length of time. In my eyes, a rite of passage! (About damn time, if you ask me. LOL!)
Clyde will be real happy in his new home. Now, we just have to figure out how to get it in my son’s car for the trip back to school!
