Just built my first stand for my new 30 gallon tank

Ok so I just got a new 30 gallon tank and I am building a stand for the first time. I watched a bunch of YouTube videos one night and then went at it the next day. I know a 30 gallon isn't that big but I'm in an apartment and really want to make sure my stand holds up. What do you think?Click image for larger version

Nice! Are you going to put a finish on it or leave as is?

you really can't over build a stand at least I don't think so
I went over board on mine but now it's furniture


The more over finished the construction is it's less likely going to tip under load , this stand is holding a 90g tank full of water the weight is 630 lbs
stand weighs in at 195 lbs . this thing don't move
