New 100G long tank Build

Managed to pick up a 100G (Roughly) long tank with a synergy overflow box. Both brand new, original owner didn't like the bracing. Originally was gonna do a LMB aquarium, but found this aquarium for a steal. Was hoping to get some tips on building a stand. I will begin building the sump next week. Welcoming all advice, I have had experience saltwater aquariums before and I'm glad to be back in it! Will begin sourcing out parts in the next two weeks and hopefully I will have this tank up and running before the summer ends! Click image for larger version

Nice tank. Almost looks like a 125g tank.

Well, when I run a calculator with those measurements it says actually 95G-96G. But I just round it off to 100G. I think the 125G is taller.

Not a problem! If you have any experience with woodworking and can offer advice for building the stand, that would be greatly appreciated
