My DIY stand

here a look at my stand i build. after waiting almost a whole month for my krig jig to come i finlly got it the other day, finlly got my lumber pocked together.

stand is made out of 2 by 3.
there a 3 lvl as you can see. top is 48"
middle is 44 and bottom is 40.
im using this stand for a 20 long on top
two 10 gallon in the middle and maybe another 10 at the bottom if not maybe a 5.5 gallon.

this stand was made to hold 2 10gallon in the middle which = to 40" by adding 4" to it it leave space between each tank just what i need. in the long run if i wanna remove the 20 long ill replace it with a tank that = to 48" L and 13" W.

Stand Dimensions
L- 48"
W- 13"
H- 30"

all it need is the plywood and some more lumber add to the middle part n bottom to hold, ill add the plywood to the stand on sat-day. DAY OFF

Not the best stand but cheap n simple to make.
It's for the basement so there really no need to make it look nice.

Hit it with some spray paint and it'll look fine. I built something similar for my 40B recently.

i been having tooth pain for a month now, heavnt got anything done to the stand yet. this pain just wont go away, but getting better slowly. the Dimensions for L is 2 inch shorter by putting 4 small leg in the middle as see in the pic, its cutting the L by 4 inch. so now 2 10's wont fit in the middle. so what i did was remove the small legs. but still the bottom wont fit 2 10"s. it will fit 1 10 and 1 5.5. the top Dimensions for W is only 12 not 13, 1inch short which make the 20 long poping out on the side about an inch only.

i tho i got this stand Dimensions all right but i guess i rush through it and mess up the Dimensions a bit.


if i lay a plywood on top making it 4inch(W) and 2inch(L) the 20 will fit.


i made the stand from using a hand SAW n with only a lilo brain on tool working i made 2 stand so far.
