This is my very simple tank stand I made 3 weeks ago. It is made from a single 12' 2"x12" piece of douglass fir. I cut it in half planed the sides put in some dowels then glued the 2 pieces together in a butt joint. I stained it with a dark stain I don't remember the name. Then gave it 4 coats of polyacrylic. It sits on top of two 3' step ladders. I had originaly planed to use wooden barrels but couldn't find any at the local stores. I also have an old 2"x12" board going across the lower step to make a shelf. the total cost was about $80 not counting the stain & varnish & glue since I already had that stuff. I have a bit of a motif going im my apartment since my desk is just a 4'x7' door on top of 2 file cabinets. they may not be pretty but they are simple cheap and functional which are my main priorities. So what do you think of my setup, have any of you made a simalar stand?
