3 tier stand

I'm trying to wrap my head around which would be the best method of doing this.

I'm going to build a 3 tier stand. Which will hold 3x10g aquariums.

I'm asking if anyone has a sketch up of how they did it. I keep doing sketches but can't settle on any.

I'll be wiring in lighting once I have it built so yeah lol. Lights will run on a timer and all that good stuff lol.

This is me getting used to playing with wood before I build my massive stands for my 120 and two 55's.
Side note, I'll build one of these, see how I like it, then I"ll build it again.

I plan on doing it in detail on here for you all to see. Waiting on a new saw right now and I"ll be set. Checking CL's and various stores for a good one used to cut on cost some lol. Don't want to spend over 50.. though some new ones are 40-50 ish.. might take a look at those I suppose.

Anyways let me here some ideas if you have them. I'll probably reinforce the joints with steel as well.



Designing my 120 setup for my bedroom... send me ideas if you have any. Tank will house Endler's.

Did you ever build the 3 teir stand? Im looking to build a stand to hold 3 or 4 10 gallon tanks as a breeding shelf. Wondering how your stand worked out.

Couldn't you.. build the tanks INTO the stand? Like creating a 3 tier tank. What parts of your sketches were you having difficulty deciding on? Design of the stand, support of the shelves, etc?
