It will take a bit of doing but i will give it a try have to take pics than load them and send them i have a little trouble finding pics on my pc even after i down load them so work with me and i'll try and show what i did. Hope it will work for the long haul, i really like it , just need a couple ideas about cooling, and would like to have a place to get wires and the like in without loosing humidity . see me 9:30 or so
Doorstop!I still want to use it for something, just haven't found the right application yet.
I was fooled into buying one of those crummy foggers too, back before 2000 when they were "new technology" in the reptile hobby. I won't tell you exactly HOW MUCH I paid for mine but it was well over $100 and it worked about as well for as long as most peoples experiences with them. Maybe a week then never made a puff again.
I then bought a cheap $35 ultrasonic humidifier from the pharmacy that held 2 gallons of water and it ran 24/7 for six years straight! lol
keep loosing my place try again

[/COLOR]just ordered the glass it was easier to assemble than i thought it would be just need to make good beads of silicone at each seam so you'll get a water tight seal, once mine was assembled i cleaned off the excess on the inside and applied another fairly large bead of silicone and smoothed it out with my finger, use an aquarium for reference
make a nice smooth finish this will be your water tight seal

Good job! How much did it run you for materials?
about 90.00 for the glass and 15.00 for the aquarium silicone i ordered the silicone amazon to get a large tube and it almost took the full tube the front doors are plexi glass and i put a two inch piece of the 1/4 inch glass on the bottom front edge and a 1 1/2 piece on the top front then used H track over to create a sliding effect for the doors they are split in the middle so i can just slide them out of the way completely ( the H track you can pick up for about 9.00 to 10.00 from lowes its the stuff they use for the composite lattice , the stuff you use under decks and such
just wedged them up on the top and down on the bottom be careful not to push to hard i put a few slivers of red wood shims behind, and inside tank top edge hopping it will swell with the humidity and help hold at any rate the doors support the track and it can't fall down its worked great so far
