Vivarium Unit
« on: April 29, 2019, 02:40 PM »
Been a while since I posted anything as had other metal related projects on the go, thought I would post some of the wood related projects I have completed recently. This is a vivarium for a bearded dragon my daughters adopted just before Christmas. We have a industrial/rustic furniture style in this room and mrs RDR wanted something in keeping so I had a go!

The wood is all reclaimed from pallets I planed it down and joined into planks with dominos and glue. My OCD kept twitching as I was trying to keep the rustic look and not go for perfection  [unsure]

employed a helper as it was for her

dry fit

building up colours to match other units


viv finished now onto unit to house it

welded up a metal frame


made some more panels from pallets


made some hinges on the lathe and doors


all finished

Turned out beautiful.  I like the balance between the metal and the wood.
