    I built this with a 36" base cabinet, barbecue grill rotisserie for egg turner, incukit 250 from incubator warehouse and a few things laying around the house. I have a test batch in right now three days old and have made a few changes since. I will post how it turns out. Holding steady temps after a few adjustments.

    I put some eggs in the incubator as well, (on the 7th) but I didn't make my own incubator! [​IMG] I'm using my Brinsea Mini Advanced!! [​IMG]
