Well I’m getting closer and closer to finishing this cabinet. We have some yucky weather on the way, some say rain some say snow either way I plan to spend most of my day in the garage working on the stand. I built the canopy today. I have a few things to finish up and some logistics to figure out. I haven’t decided how I want to do the top/lid and I haven’t figured out exactly how I’m going to mount the Heat sink with LEDs on it inside the canopy. Anyway I’m sure you all want to see pics so here we go…
The front face frame of the canopy…
Notice I drilled and counter sunk the screws on the face frame. This is the center brace I did the same on the ends..
The sides were built in the same fashion. After they were assembled I built the box itself. Here it is on the tank. I put braces along the sides of the canopy that rest on the trim of the tank and keep the canopy level and just low enough to cover the plastic trim
Here you can see that I have added one of the panels to the side.
