I took off one of the doors to the canopy to sand it down to get myself an understanding of the work that I have got to do. What I learned is that I will need to spend an entire day sanding away with this palm sander I have or I will need to break down and buy a belt sander and cut this time down to like an hour.

I've been working the last few days and have only managed to sand down two of the four doors. Tomorrow I will get all of it sanded down and ready to stain even it takes all day.

All doors canopy and the front of the stand are sanded. Found that I will need to replace the bottom of the stand. It was very fragile and warped. I didn't want to chance it so it has been pulled off. I will get new wood tomorrow and finish the sanding. I think I will paint the inside of the stand and the canopy white.

Sanded and stained all but the doors. I decided that I wanted to sand them more.

I will add the varnish tomorrow so I will get a shine on it.
I didn't do the inside, I'm going to paint it white in there.

Ordered a mag drive 12, two of the magnum 7 power heads and 2 of the 120w Chinese LED with moonlights and timers. Now just the new skimmer is all I need short of the plumbing.
