You can order them in it's a little pricy not too bad and well worth it you will love the look if you do decide to order them in it will take a couple weeks and I would get them unfinished so you can match it perfectly

I might do that but for right now I want to get something in there, so I'm going to make my own and see how they come out.

The power strips showed up today, I have to wait for the poly to dry on the side sheets so I installed them, they come with little brackets that they just snap into, very cool. These are just what I was hoping for.

New pictures are up.

It's looking really good I bet your excited for the finished product to tell you the truth I wouldn't cut for doors in the top cause it looks amazing and would kinda be hard to get at behind the tank I would just leave it under the stand and just open the main doors to access them IMO but totally up to you

Yeah I was trying to decide what to do. I want to be able to run the cables inside of the cabinet. I could either cut the hole in the, the sides or the back. The problem with doing it on the back side is if I ever want to put this in the middle of a room the back will be ugly. Maybe the side is the way to go. Or maybe just drill some holes in the back near the top.

What do you think?

You may not agree but I drilled a hole in the top at the back with a hole saw like an office desk and put the rubber trim peice around it know what I mean?
