It looks great. You really know your way around furniture building for sure.
LOL!!!

Thank you very much! Tomorrow I will have the stand completely finished. I want to put a second coat of paint and I have to actually put the tiles on the top. I will have to trim around them as well haven't decided exactly how I am going to do that but I want to get the tile down before I make up my mind.

All in all I'm pretty pleased with how this has turned out.

You got the furniture building skills for sure! Why did you tile under the tank? Just curious. I wouldn't have but I do flooring from time to time. The stand might up stage the tank.

Thanks a lot!

No woodworking is just a hobby. This is actually the first thing I've built in about 3 years.

Thanks!

I decided to go with tile because it adds interest to the stand. The tile looks very much like the inside of an oyster shell. Because the tank is small I am not concerned about the tile. These tiles are just under 1/4" thick. The top is nice and flat/level so there wont be any issues.

Wait til you see the hardware I have ordered for the doors...

Wow, nice job!

I could never build something like that! In fact I don't know if I can build anything, LOL.

Thanks redsea! Just give it a try you might surprise yourself. We all had to learn at some point. I've been building cabinets and furniture for about 12 years now.

Got the LEDs mounted in the canopy... I came up with an adjustable system so I can raise or lower the lights if I need to.





What do you think??
