    Wow, that's a neat idea.

    Does anybody have more info on the bottom inserts with the holes? What are they called, and where can one find them?

    Thanks.

    If you followed the link I provided it has detailed instructions and says:
    I then cut the plastic piece that is on the bottom of the container at a craft store. I do not have the package anymore. I think it was in the yarn, knitting area. Bought the large round ones and cut it to fit snug in the bottom of the container. I then used aquarium seal to make sure the plastic piece would not come out.

    Yes, I saw that... but if I went to a craft store, I'd still need to know what the item is called.

    I suppose I could print out a picture from the top of this post, and take it with me, and ask, "Do you have any of these? What are they called?"

    It's called plastic canvas and is a common item used for needle point crafts.

    I assume a place like Hobby Lobby would have it?

    As far as I know plastic canvas is just a flat sheet of plastic with a uniform grid of holes. What gecko used was a little cup-shaped thing.

    Though I guess you could use plastic canvas for this if you cut it into a circle anyway.

    They have them in a circle. That's what I used. They come in several different sizes.

    I'm sure a Hobby Lobby would have them.
