Well, if you are trying to recycle some wood you already have, I suggest this very simplistic furniture plan as reference, because of low needs of material:

Ana White | Build a Benchright Farmhouse Bench | Free and Easy DIY Project and Furniture Plans

I had a broken slatted bed base like this:

And became this:

I had to buy three more pieces of wood, but it ended up costing me less than 15 dollars (including the nice box below). It took me quite some time because I worked with very simple tools, like Swiss knife and plastic ruler... but you can make it in one day with proper tools.

Btw, mine is a 14g tank.

If you are going to buy the material, maybe it would be interesting to check other plans in the same website I sent you.

Here's 3 pics and I'll post a pic of it done tomorrow.
... Of course the first 2 are turned 90 degrees.
