Anyone out there have the dimensions to make a plexiglass booth for sugar work (warming the sugar for pulling, etc.). I've seen a couple of home-made ones at a convention, complete with the hot bulb and brooder-type shield but never thought of taking measurements. I recently acquired a 3'x7' piece of plexiglass that I want to cut up and attach hinges to for easy storage.

I don't have any measurements, but have you tried looking up the ones that are sold online? Look at their sizes and see if one would fit your needs and the place you plan on using it.

No magic dimensions--just whatever works for you.

Once you hang the heat lamp in the middle, you wind up with a very hot spot, a warm ring, and outer cool spots--all very useful at various times in the process.

My particular box is a 2ft. cube--3 sides of bent plexiglass, a wooden top with a hole for the heat lamp to hang thru, an open front, and a piece of pegboard inside the bottom with a silpat mat on top of that.

Here is a site that has some dimensions on it. As Blakes said there doesn't have to be an exact size, but it will give you an idea.

I have the one that is $165. I love it. It folds up and doesn't take up very much room.
