I have often thought about making one, they seem pretty simple to do overall....and love the fact that you can tailor one to your desired size, but I have always been too worried about my rubbish DIY skills compramising the overall build and it all ending in disaster! lol.....they look great though IMO!! best of luck and please do a progress thread if you get chance, would be great to see how it turns out from start to finish.

it will be in the cellar so could be great. hoping to make two in total. ill start with a smaller one for the turtle. was planning on making a indoor turtle pond but now changed my mind and going down the plywood aquarium route love the idea of getting a side view
