    made an acrylic terra today

    it took me about an hour and half to make it, for 20$ i figured i should take a stab at working with acrylic and i found that its actually quite easy. im sure that giving myself a couple days to make another one would result in a decent terra. for an hour+ of work i think this came out alright lol.

    Cool, stuff!
    Is this acrylic that is known not to bow or flex with heat/humidity? It sucks when that happens.

    sooo...i went to sleep with the terra settling overnight. while i dreamt of lollipops and rainbows, my f***ing dogs got into the garage and knocked the terrarium project over which btw was up on a 3.6ft high shelft!!! needless to say...im pretty bummed out. but hopefully i can smooth out the corners that i cut to save time and turn this into a real tank instead of just a quick "lets see if im handy enough to do this only to find out later on that ill never know because i have overly-curious dogs" project.
