210 FOWLR Build . . .

Howdy All --
I thought I'd post photos/progress on a project to install a 210 gallon FOWLR tank/stand/canopy.
I've attached the pics beginning with the removal of a cabinet where the tank will go and the beginning of the stand. The stand will be rather high - 41 inches. ' more photos will hopefully soon follow - it's gonna be a long process!
