Default Another Retro Designer Terrarium from Holland

Hello everyone!

This topic is a (small) report regarding a project I just finished.

This is my previous build!

It measures 50 x 40 x 100 cm.

The terrarium is hanging to the wall, the suspension system is placed on the inside of the frame. This terrarium is just like my other terrarium lined with white leather on the outside.

Model made as an example.




The fresh air goes from top to bottom at the sides.

The front and rear side are of glass. The wall of the container will become 40mm thick and is insulated with polyurethane for insulation.

Frame work made ​​of MDF



Inner plate, in


PUR insulation, in


Outer plate on.



Allready done.




And decorated!



Please let me know what you think!

Greetings from Holland!

May I ask how you finish and seal your interior? I think your design and execution is superb! Just wondering if they are also built to last?

Very cool, love the white leather!

I've been looking at some Victorian terrariums and fancied building one in that style.

Love it! I think the design of this one is more practical then the last aswell, although it's a shame that the fluidity is broken up by the glass runners at the top and bottom, I think if it was me I'd have hinged glass doors to avoid using runners
