DIY tank stand

Im getting things together to build my stand for the 120gal I am going to buy after x-mas.

This will only be my second DIY project.
The first was a light for my 55gal.

I am using 4x4 posts for the corners and double 2x4's for the rest of the frame.
Waynes coating panels(from lowes) will make up the outer part of the stand.
Then some kitchen cabinet doors(also from lowes) will be used.
THICK plywood for the inside shelf and top.

The 120gal I am getting is about as long as my 55gal but alot wider.

So what do you think?
Sound like it will hold..lol?

The material that you plan on using sounds fine. If you have any experience in basic woodworking, this is a piece of cake.

Remember, level-level-level!!!!
