    So I'm starting on my turtle table! It's approximately 7 feet by 3 feet. I'm excited for what this will become. If I'm successful, I will post instructions and dimensions.

    Nice. I like "L" shapes for tortoises.

    I like the idea. Look forward to seeing it when it's ready.

    Any pics of your tort?

    And welcome to the forum.

    Here is the finished product! I ended up keeping it as an enclosure and not a table because it looked to overwhelming - this has more of a zen effect. Here is a pic of my tort getting his soak as well :) IMG_1262.JPG IMG_1264.JPG IMG_1196.PNG

    Your cute tort is really lucky. ;)

    I did a water proof tarp on the bottom and wood sealant (caulk) to seal the edges. WAIT for it to dry. lol

    Thank you very much! I'm hoping after years of abuse - this will cheer him up!
