hacking a turtle terrarium

marcus hacked an old benno tv unit into a terrarium for his turtle.

he says, “all the wood used is from benno: i cut the shelves into narrow boards that i mounted in the front and back to get a ‘basin’ for the sand. i cut some holes into the side walls for ventilation. then i plated the corners with 0.7mm steel sheets, because the turtle really likes to ‘dig’ in there. finally, i painted the whole interior with 3 layers of yacht lacquer (2-component paint that forms a very hard sort of plastic) to make it water- and scratch-proof.
