50g Tank Stand

I couldn't find a stand that I liked for my 50 gallon so I decided to make one. We've got kind of a rustic theme in the house so, I decided to go the pallet route and make one out of pallets. I didn't take any pictures during the main build because it was the typical 2 x 4 stand.

I used a Minwax water based stain on it with the polycrylic top coat and I'm pretty happy with the results.Click image for larger version

Looks nice! What's the internal frame made of?

Edit: D'oh! Never mind, I just saw the 2x4 mention.

looks good I like the rustic look . just be sure you have enough support to hold weight of the water. I always have safety first on my mind

Thank you! The internal frame is like the one attached except I added a vertical brace on the front and back to support the middle.

Sounds like you had a good plan: I'm a great believer in over-building.
