    How to build a snake rack for Ball Pythons

    I am considering building a snake rack for my Ball Pthons, since I am still having issues with keeping the humidity in my tanks right. It's so freaking hot that the A/C never turns off and I think that is the problem. 1st question is does anyone know of where to find plans to build a nice snake rack for them? and 2nd is the plan I have found have said to use pine wood to build it with, but I know pine shavings are bad for snakes, so wouldn't pine wood be bad to build a rack out of? Thanks for any input

    here is a link for a 41qt it uses melamine a little heavy but it is a good rack I have built one and it works great, you can pretty much follow the same plans for smaller 32qt or a 32/16qt sideways rack just have to change the measurements
    I will try to figure out how to post the cut layouts if you need them
