Question DIY Aquarium Stand Questions

So tomorrow my step dad and I are going to make a 26in tall stand for my 29 gallon tank. Its going to be simple nothing fancy. I was going to put pictures up about how we build it but I wasn't sure if anyone was interested in seeing it.

So is there anyone interested?

PS: the reason we are making it short is cause we are a short family (Im only 5 foot tall) so it will make it easier for me to clean and work with.

I'd be interested. DIY projects add another nice element to the hobby, in my opinion.
