    Re: The Frugal Herper's Snake Rack

    I will be working on a rack like this next payday lol. I like projects like this. I haven't really had this much fun since building my wet/dry filtration for my 210gal aquarium.
    Back to the hardware store for me!!!!

    Thanks Robin, I built 2 with Iris shoeboxes, I was emailing justin the week before you posted this asking him what model shelves he had used, then a few days later saw this. Havent installed heat yet.

    BTW you did a great job on the writeup, was very simple to follow.

    Re: The Frugal Herper's Snake Rack

    Eucaboard is more commonly known as masonite, temperboard or (tempered) hardboard. It measures 1/8" or 3/16" usually.

    Do you have any sagging problems with the temperboard? It seems like it would be better to use the temperboard as the top and set the tubs on the shelf. Maybe it is different than what it seems, but I get the picture that there is about a 1+" gap between the top of one shelf to the temperboard floor of the level above it.

    Well the Eucabord could react with humidity and water. While it won't happen with plastic.

    The eucabord is there to support the tubs and heat tape. You could use something else, but I don't think you will find something that will do the job as cheap.

    btw : Was there any one who know where to find these in Canada ? Even on the US lowes website, I couldn't find them.
    The only thing close to it was this



    http://images.lowes.com/product/045989/045989017267.jpg

    And this is what I find around here in Canada but a bit more expensive.
    The 24'' versions are at 89.99$. Not sure it's even worth to build these instead of melamine, other than it's "light weight".
