Turtle dock

Trying to keep as natural as possible I decided to make my own Turtle dock,just another place for the Turtles to use .
One piece of big wood with two channels chiseled in the back to allow for a flush fit against the tub
Two strips of aluminmn drilled to take stainless steel screws ( they won't rust ) then curved to hang over the side of the tub.
Powder coating on both strips ( black ) just for cosmetics
Total cost £14 ish..and about 1 hours work in the workshop
