So, I just found this place and am enjoying the diy section. I recently built a stand for a 30tall and now am contemplating a stand for a 125 that was just given to me.
The doors are in the garage and need to be shaved down just a bit, so they'll go on soon. I built it low so my 1 and 2 year olds can watch the fish and the ten next to it is now in the crawl space forgotten.
Anyway, I was wondering if I could get some specs on your stand? Wood species, construction techniques, etc.
I'm considering poplar stained to mimic walnut with 1x3 I beams resting on 4 boxes front and back. Most of the production stand seem to have rabbetted 1x6s resting on and holding up 2x4s. Is that what you used?
Other suggestions are helpful.
