New stand

Ok so I want to get an official stand for my thirty gallon, it's on a dresser now but I want that dresser for my apartment living room for a tv stand.
So my birthday is in a few months so I was going to ask my dad to build me a stand for my birthday. He actually asked once before so I'm sure he will haha
Anyway, any good links to check out for DIY aquarium stands? I found a stickie link here but want to see any other options out there.
I want it made with sturdy but affordable wood, and have him stain it to match my furniture.
I'm not looking for a fancy cabinet, just something sturdy and level and isn't easily knocked over. Thanks!!

I'm actually in the process of building a stand right now and the advice I was given was to go to Aquarium stores and check out theirs and how they are made then copy it! Otherwise here is a site than can help you with designing one!
