Starting a new aquarium stand for my bedroom. In the process of drawing it up in google sketch. So far I have the lower section of the stand drawn up. It will hold a 20g tank. The stand itself will be made from left over 2x4's that I have in my garage. I need feedback on whether this portion is going to be sturdy enough to support the tank. Here are a few sketch's of my idea.
Photo #1: Top portion portion of the base where the tank will sit. I will be using 5/8in particle board directly under the tank.
Photo #2: The actual structure of the base. I want to be sure this will properly support the edges of the tank so I dont run into problems.
Photo #3: What it will look like with the tank. Everything is to scale.
