Well I did build mine, but I don't know if it will be overkill for what you are wanting to do or not, because I built mine to match the base that I built, I dont really have any instructions on the site, but there should be enough pics there for you to see what I did.
Pretty much just a base built out of 2x4s and then plywood panels all the way except the back completely open. Now this is also on a 75g, if you have a smaller tank, I would recommend going with something a little smaller and lighter.
I installed 2 2' flourescent lights into the hood as well, seems to be lighting my tank quite well. BTW, if you end up wiring the lights yourself like I did, don't forget to wire in a switch like I forgot to do, it becomes a pain to go back and rewire it. http://paulandsarrah.com/viewpage.php?page_id=13
