NICE! I particularly like the way you have done the doors in old barn style.

That was my pops idea. Although he was right on the money. I love the old rustic look

The trim at the top is a nice touch. Good job!

Well life kicked me in the butt, still not finished sanding the new stand and will be delayed a couple months on upgrading to the big tank. Got a new job and will be temporarily living with my mom and pops. They have a 75g way under stocked so I will be moving my fish in there until I get my own place again.

Awesome stand! Your pop's is a good carpenter. A little advice. See if your old man can take about 3/8 to a 1/2 off the bottom of the doors so your carpet doesn't keep the doors from opening or kick them out of level
