Okay so, after an hour and a half I quit. It's so humid outside since it's been rainy. cannot do more. ;;

HOWEVER I did finish the back, get a side and a third of the bottom done. 2 more good work sessions and i'll be done. If I get undisgusting, I may go back and work some more.

Your last post was a couple days ago do you have aupdate picture, Correct me if I am wrong, you are bonding glass together to make a tank also? I saw your first pictures of the plywood, that was a bunch of wood.

I built a stand 4 years ago for my 75 gal out of 3/4 red oak and used a tongue and groove method, I have wanted to do another but I would like to do the glass next time.

There's kind of no point in pictures since it's just fiberglass. You can't see it. Once I finish the stand and start pond armoring, then pictures.

I'm not bonding glass. Just sealing a big box and siliconing a panel of glass in.

How did that method work for the stand? Got any pics?
