55 Gal stand build

I have been woodworking a long time and this is the stand I made for my 1st tank. This was a while ago, but I thought I would share it with you. All the joinery are lap joints, were the horizontal piece sit in notches on the legs. The strength is in the wood to wood contact not the screws. I also glued all the joints. I then skinned it in cherry. The tank sits in a small recess so it could not move around. Unfortunately I don't have this set up any more. I am getting ready to build a stand for my new/used 50 gal bow front.

That is a fine piece of furniture that just so happens to have an aquarium on it. And it matches the flooring. Nice job!
