This guy is extra salty

So being bored at work I decided to make an AIO with a simple design I’m planning on making 10-30gallon AIO out of acrylic 

plus i can do custom engravings on lids back walls ETC.

Well it’s a 6 gallon dosing container 😂 

baby Jesus would weigh one of the chambers half full.. lol. 

 

Uhm I haven’t decided, cost of material plus labor? Probably a bit under market price

 

pm me for what size you’re looking for
