TV Tank

I am fully investigating the process of turning an old TV into a fish tank. If I find the ideal TV I am thinking a 20 gallon will be the maximum. I am going to try finding the old wooden TVs, if anybody has any ideas where to look (other than garage sales, which is the only place I know now!) please hollar!

It's going to take a long time for me to finish the project, find the tv, etc.; but I'll be sure to post pictures as I go through the process!

That could be interesting.
Make sure you don't use plugs or you'll electrocute your fish.

No, I am going to remove all of the inner TV components!

And here comes the weirdest DIY thread.

Hmm, could you make a custom cabinet instead that made it appear as a flat screen tv? Or would that take the fun out of it? :P

Well, I don't have a whole lot of woodworking tools to begin with; but I definitely think that could be done :P

Not to get too off topic, but you know what could look interesting? A cabinet that made the tank appear to be the belly of a whale. Perhaps a bit corny...

No I think something like that would be awesome! It really wouldn't be too awful hard to do, assuming you had the space, time, and desire

You could even find a bowfront to plug in and if you had the whale at the right angle you could play it off like a whale pot-belly :P

The whale tank is a cute idea! :)
How's the TV Tank coming along?

Still searching, I've found a couple that were okay, but none that are going to work out extremely well yet. My search continues!
