Josh's New Aquarium Setup Diary

Hi, I wanted to start a post which I will update as I progress through my new aquarium setup. So far I have the tank and plans for the cabinet:



I want the cabinet to look like this:



And here are my plans so far:



*** UPDATE 09-24-06 ***
Did some work this weekend at my dads, we got the frame done as well as most of the finish work. Didn't start on the canopy yet, however. Here is a pic of the frame - it's built like a tank! Should be done next weekend.



*** UPDATE 09-24-06 ***
Yaaaay, it's done!!! Well the cabinet is at least, still need to setup the aquarium. My dad and I (with a little help from my little bother) finished this in about 4-5 days total. Total cost: about $150! What deal! The inner frame is constructed of 2x6, 2x4, 4x4 and plywood, while the outside is solid cherry, the panels inside the doors, etc are cherry veneer. It looks great, if I do say so myself.

Here are the pics, sorry they're blurry. My camera sucks, a lot. Let me know what you think.




Hey...I can't upload the second pic....have I reached my limit??

Thanks!! It came out pretty well, there are a couple "home made" errors but for the most part, I am very pleased!
