tank stand and canopy i built

the first pic is hard to see..but its just a basic frame..the next few pics are in consecutive days...it took me about a week though to fully sand and varnish everything..i reccommend that you do this in a garage ...lol. i built the stand a little larger than the tank itself...its very heavy due to the way i did this. its my first attempt at building a stand so its a little over produced... but very sturdy...it was built for the free 55 gallon tank that i got...so i priced them and figured it would be cheaper since i have or had all the wood for it...this also made me think maybe i should build them and sell them... but very heavy to ship...tell me what yall think...i might make more..all kinds of sizes. if ya want one..hehehe
