    You can do it but its hard. Lack of insulation is the biggest issue.

    I made one today. Its insulated with 1 inch thick blue foam board. I have it setting on its side, with the door on half. The open side is covered with plexiglass. It being on its side means that I could drill ventilators in the plexi.
