    First post!

    I built this DIY wine cooler incubator about 2 weeks ago. It has been holding a steady 99/100 degrees F and ~30% humidity for several days so I added 46 eggs yesterday.

    Some of the features
    - 2 light bulb and a water heater for temp setting
    - 2x 1 gallon water bottles for temp stabilization
    - 1 computer fan for circulation
    - 3 egg trays, should hold 150 eggs (way more then I need)
    - 3 thermometers (2 digital temp/humidity & 1 standard)
    - 1 water wiggler with digital temp probe inside for internal egg temp

    I got all my inspiration from other diy threads on BYC, so thanks to all you builders!

    thanks for looking
    David
