Thanks!! This was my first time ever doing something like this with wood too. And Yea. The ones they sell are made out of that crappy chipboard which I would never trust with a tank that big. They look like one good knock is all it would take to make them collapse. And they're so expensive!!! The materials for this cost me about 200 dollars and Its not hollow like the ones in the lfs either. It have everything I want such as drawers and shelves

Its going to be a community tank
