Everyone needs a hospital cage and in the past I have used makeshift cages consisting of a lamp, a towel and a show cage. I have finally "bitten the bullet" and made one. The photos below give you an idea of the design. It has a melamine base and the top and walls are made of plywood. The front is polycarb sheet. The thermostat, and the ceramic heat source (60w) were purchased for around $20 each on eBay. Seems to work pretty well and was east to make!
