The Wooden Box Terrarium
Here is a look at the completed terrarium . This is what we will make including building the wooden part, the clear plastic part and adding the plants.
Ok, the whole thing is a pretty simple set up and I will walk you through it all. The first thing we build is the four walls of the box. These pieces of wood were all cut from the same piece of pine. Two pieces are twelve inches in length and two pieces are eight inches in length. Four screws on this side and four screws around the back. The wood is six inches high and about 3/4 of an inch thick.
Drilling holes for the screws makes it much easier to aseemble and you will keep everything nice and straight.
Next you measure and cut a bottom onto it. It should be about ten inches by twelve inches depending on how thick your side walls are.
The Plastic box is five sheets of Lexan that I bought at the home depot. I cut them and glued them together.
