It occurs to me that what you are going to be making looks
a lot like those hydronic radiant heating things they put
in floors. These consist of Pex sandwiched between aluminum
plates or aluminum with a U shaped channel pressed in the
middle that holds the Pex.

You might look at how these are constructed for ideas.

Dear Sam above, When I say homebrew I mean DIY or make it yourself
nothing to do with wine or beer.

I already purchased the ally sheets 2 off just over 8*4 I also have a
sheet of marine plywood 8*4 I plan to make a shallow box about 4
inches deep with the plywoon on the bottom. In this box I will put
some insulation about an inch then the ally sheets.

I plan to put spacers in between the sheets about .5 inches thick and
then drill holes about 6mm dia through the spacers and sheets so I can
clamp the rubber pipe in between.

I am off now to pick some blackberries
