    Looks like a fun project.
    use the liquid nail.

    Re: Building an enclosure , but not for a speaker...

    don't know about what to use. but how hard is it to take care of one. i've been on the womans case about getting one since they look cool. but what does it take to keep one alive.

    titebond is a wood glue i believe. It has chemicals in it that bond wood, not glass or w/e you are using. Liquid nails considering the fact that it is just an adhesive.

    you need this pouder to put on the crickets thats like 5 bucks.
    you can get the bearded dragon at reptile shows for diff prices

    Re: Building an enclosure , but not for a speaker...

    Just looked at what you plan on making. Isn't melamine just another type of pressed wood, or am I way off? I can't see liquid nails being a problem. It won't run like the wood glue i've used (titebond 1, never used the others), and it's not like your lizard is pounding on the walls like a sub would. Hell, I used liquid nails for my sub box before I knew better.

    Good luck. that guy's awesome, he deserves a good home

    its pressed particle board with a plastic type coating. i would be using the adheasive for the wood , not for the plexi.
