    Mushroom box

    Entire box can be taken apart to get any mushroom that may have decided to attach in a difficult area, back out.

    Has legs to keep it steady on the sand bed.

    Yeah I have a clear top that replaces the vented top. My original thought was vented for fish and clear for better light transmission for corals. The customer wanted the vented top for his mushrooms.

    Yeah cnc, and I have a diy cnc at this point. I started with an xcarve but quickly found out it isn't good for what I want so it has been highly modified. If you are interested in getting a cnc I can help point you in a couple of directions. I'm in about 3500 so far for what is considered a hobby grade small cnc

    It's great for wood but there is a balance between speed and spindle speed when cutting acrylic to get a good cut. The xcarve can do it stock if you want something like this mushroom box to take 6 hours to cut
