The sad first attempt at a stand that could hold 280 gallons (hahahhaha)
Ok so i didn't have a camera so i skipped some of it but I overhauled the stand and here is where i started taking pics again:
Here is the front, The front window is 60"x28"
Here i have the side piece in. The other side will be glass along with the main viewing window.
Does this side need a brace in the middle? I guess it wouldn't hurt.
This will get 2 more braces just haven't cut the wood yet.
And there she is.
Any advice you guys have would be awesome and any positive or negative comments also. This is my first build so the more info the better.
Price Sheet (so far):
Boards = Four 2x4x16 at 4 bucks a piece | Four 4x4's at 3 bucks a piece
