First, I must start off by saying, I am not Bob Villa or anything, I have never really built anything out of wood before. So with the help of my father in-law, I was able to finish the stand you are about to see, the 55g tank is still in the process of planning (as you can see)
The stand is made from 2x4's and 4x4's, the 4x4's are notched to fit the 2x4 frame into them (helping with the strength). The frame is covered in an oak facade. All for just over $100 bucks, now I just have to work on the matching canopy.
My only regret is not figuring in the cork under the tank when planning how high the oak facade goes to cover the black frame of the tank
. But, the black sand substraight should help cover that up.
