New stand!

So in school I have access to all the machines to make a beautiful stand so Im going to be doing so... I just had found this part of the forum and will update this daily with pictures starting tomorrow!


Stay tuned everyone!!!

Btw it's made of Oak and not some poopy pine material that could crap out of the years no offence to anyone that has made one of pine they last awhile but hardwood ultimately beats soft wood!

Plans






Sides and stretcher frames





That's what it looks like so far pretty bare and gut less hahaha more to come tomorrow I'm making the shelf for the inside...

Sorry if the pictures are huge I had no intentions of making them so that they would be that large

Pics are fine. I just have a comment wouldnt the strechers be better if they where up instead of the side? thats just me. But over all you looking good. I think it would also help to know how muwch your spending so far. Lots of ppl find it usefull to knw this to compare the price of a cheap stand. Might convince them to build there own.

Middle shelf that fits into the middle dato grove in the side pieces this will help support weight. Along with a face frame that I will build soon that will be infact vertical as well to help with the weight of the tank in due time
