Hey guys, I've decided to start my monitor on a bigger enclosure, whether that will be his full sized or a temporary on in between is yet to be decided. I'm thinking of using this marine board, which seems like plywood coated in plastic. So, I have two questions: 1. Should I silicon the cage together as well as us screws or nails, or will those suffice? 2. I'm don't have much experience with building stuff like this, so I would like to know, would it be easier for a beginner to make a sliding doors and install the tracks, or to make hinges and drill through the glass? Are there any other methods for making cage doors? Any advice would be appreciated, thanks!
