Homemade stand #1 130 gallon, next project 300 gallon stand

We'll the 300 gallon is still waiting on me to get around to fixing it and building a stand. Over the last few weeks I've built a stand for my 130 gallon tank. This stand is super sturdy, 3/4 red oak ply for shell, base is about 100 lbs of 2x4's and some nice trim. It's taken about 3 weeks to complete this taking my time had about 4 sessions of 3 1/2 hours each.

Check out the pictures:

I have a tencor 130 it has all the filters, etc. built into the back of the acrylic tank. Figured I'd add doors later if needed.
