    Hi,
    I finally got my new brooder done from a shipping crate that was going to be thrown away.

    I'm not that good of a carpenter, but I guess it will work.

    Sorry about size, won't let me edit pic size.

    Thanks everyone [​IMG] My DH works a lot of hours, and someone had to get it done. He did hepl me set it up on the saw horses though.
    Just don't look at the doors too close. [​IMG] I laughed when I finished them.
