I have to confess that I am not a tortoise keeper. The tortoise housing and tortoise tables we build are the result of numerous tortoise keeper’s requesting bigger, smaller, wider, taller, that coupled with their invaluable knowledge of what their tortoise requires and as the keeper what they require to enable them to maintain a high standard of husbandry.
A good number of the tables we make are bespoke builds be that longer, wider, or taller walls, some requiring extra features such as mesh covers to keep the cats out. Therefore, if you have a requirement, please ask. The worst we can say is “no” but it has not happed yet.

Although the timber we build with is pressure treaded or marine grade and will last many years, we still think it prudent occasionally to apply a re-treatment. I have personal used this treatment on my own housing, and can highly recommend it:
STOPS WATER DEGRADATION -
Forms a water shedding coating stopping water ingression and potential wood rot.
CAN BE APPLIED TO WET WOOD -
No waiting for that elusive day when you have time and the wood is dry.
MICRO POROUS -
Allows the wood to ‘breath’.
Has a milky colour when applied but dries clear, so OK to applied liberally without showing too many brush or run marks.
SUITABLE FOR ANIMAL HOUSING -
And says as much on the label!
