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 think it prudent to once in a while apply a re-treatment. The treatment we both use and strongly recommend prevents future wood rot by forming a WATER SHEDDING layer over the timber surface.
When first applied the treater has both the colour and consistency of diluted milk, however it dries to be fully TRANSPARENT so can be liberally applied without showing brush or run marks. It is water based so it CAN BE APPLIED TO WET WOOD. Being MICRO POROUS it allows the wood to ‘breath’ and most importantly it says SUITABLE FOR ANIMAL HOUSING on the label!
DELIVERY & VAT
Against the trend, we have always endeavoured to set out our stall with the price shown to include DELIVERY and VAT, so no hidden charges to ‘bump up’ the bill. Therefore, the price listed includes delivery for the UK Mainland (Highlands & Overseas please contact us) and assumes any options required are ordered and delivered with the principle purchase.
