Ah...NOP...I'd starve to death I think if I was to do this for a living I think.

See how the back of the stand is white and my walls are yellow? That's cause there's 3/4" backboard on there, that's even better then bracing
Plus I had a "weight test" done yesterday with hubby sitting on it, let's just say he's BIG guy and the tank will weight less then him (gravel, water and all) and it was super sturdy

A Stand or a hood? Either one would be easy enough for a 5g cause its so small.
Now that I know how to do it, I'll built more too

Excellent...I'll sleep better now knowing it isn't going to topple on you.

Very nice job again. B.

Wow that really does look sharp! I plan on having my dad help me build a stand as carpentry is his trade. First though I need to get an aquarium worthy of the effort.

Congrats on your accomplishment!

Thanks and I'm sure your dad will be able to built something far nicer then that.

DONE! (for the moment ) I have to say filling it up when the backyard water hose connection is right next to the office window is soooo much easier on the back then carry water buckets

And who'd have thought I can go with all these power tools and all this stuff, not hurt myself one time, just to cut a nice chuck outta my knuckle on the PUMP....

OK I am a carpenter...... It looks very nice. Now the only thing i see wrong is, On the back of your stand you may want to get a 1/4" inch Plywood and nail it on Top to Bottom, side to side to keep the stand Square so that way it dont start going sideways and collapes Just a thought.
