    As some saw on my incubator build i like to have my stuff look like furniture. Well, at least i try to. My bator hold 120 regular eggs but there isnt alot of room to hatch. Im building a hatch cabinet that I will but all the eggs in when they hit lock down. Hopefully my first setup will work fine as ive let time go by and lockdown for my first batch is Sunday. Ill be building this out a TV stand. I didnt have the piece laying around like i did for the bator so off to big lots i went.

    It still amazes me how compact they get all this furniture. I wont be needing about half of this as i only need the outer shell.
