Yep, I think your right. Looks like it was solid then holes were cut. Let's let the builder tell us for sure.
OK yes the holes have been cut into the ply ...I did this for several....(probably dumb) reasons.
1. Weight....This stand weights a ton(but definitly STRONG)
2. Moisture and dampness control . If for any reason water gets under the tank.....I do not want it to stay damp and cause problems to the stand by rotting the wood, even though the stand will be stained and water proofed.
3. The tank is drilled with 3 holes that are currently plugged. When I am ready for the Tank questions.....which I will be asking soon.....I may need these openings
Hope I am not wrong for doing it this way. I was just trying to do the best stand for my first DIY
Thanks for all your comments.....They are greatly appreciated!!!
