Alright, so I'll admit that I'm not very handy and I need someone's help to finish a project. I bought a bunch of supplies from Lowe's this weekend and I need help putting together some aluminum screen cages. Please! I'm begging you! lol.:):D:(
 
what's the question? do you not know how to properly frame it? or put the screen in? its very very simple, but shoot your questions, and i'll try my best to help you out ;)
 
i will do a detailed blue print if you would like and jot down tips and instructions. i've been wanting to do this for the forum anyways. when do you plan on building it? also, if you can send me a picture of your materials, i can improvise for it to work without you having to go and spend more money :) i'm willing to help, it isn't a problem. but due to valentine's day being today, i may not finish it completely

but if you'd like, i will e-mail you a copy and post it in a blog as well

Are you looking for one of the locals to help you? Go the the chameleon club in LA tomorrow night and lots of people can explain what you need to know. You might score and get someone who will drop by your place and help.

I was actually looking for both, lol. Local help and ways to actually put everything together. The meeting is next coming Tuesday and for sure I'll be there.

Blueprints sound great! Thanks so much! I'm the type of person that needs instructions and I should manage, but local help is much appreciated! :D

What I wanna do is make 8 enclosures that I could mount on the wall. 4 on top and 4 below them. I'm thinking 18" wide by 24" or 36". I have ambilobe's so what do you suggest?

Okay so my current list of supplies I have aluminum screen. I have ten 8ft long 1 by 2 inch wood. A stud finder, a hand saw, a staple gun, screws, and an electric screw thing. I'll have to post pics when I get home from work. And Laurie is right, you're awesome!

sounds like a great project! i'm sure that would be perfectly fine for panthers, but i would suggest going a few inches taller. i would hate for you to build something awesome like this than not being able to use it in the possible future due to height issues, also, God forbid but if you ever ended up losing a cham, you would be able to properly aquire a different species with no problems excluding parsons and mellers, i would suggest at a standard 4' height, or a minimum 43''.

< butts in again :eek: >

.....sorry forgot to say...I want to build 3....2 x 2 x 4 ft

many grovelling thanks

< backs out of room bowing and tipping hat >

lol. You don't have to grovel. Phil is going to write a blog about it.

The best help i can give is ... its cheaper and easier to buy them .. i did this and found out what you pay for materials .. you can buy a cage .. and then you spend all this time putting them together .. and never come out right .. or as good as store bought.. i made about 10 .. if you live near ill let you borrow my chop saw and will make a rig for you .. both much needed ..
