The lid has a hook on it and it attaches to a chain so I don’t have to hold it up.

As you can see, the square with the lamp on it is cut from the lid. That way I could also make it a lid.

But no longer want to brood in the house so I'm looking for an outside project for my son to build and use. Great people!!! Friendly info!!Welcome to byc!! Glad you could join the Flock!
