No its all the same wood the reason it looks so light in that pic is because the doors and hood were not stained when I took that photo.
The wood/rope wrapped supports on either side are because the tank is a bow front and the hood and stand are rectandular. I did this on purpose to have something different then everybody else. The rope was my wifes idea. It started because the tank is sitting on a piece of foam and it showed so I took the rope and went around the base of the tank and from there rope started popping up everywhere.
The canopy is actually very light. I can pick it up by myself. It looks very beefy but it isn't. It weighs less then the ballast I have to run the MHs.
