:P I hope it works out for you! I've got 5 coats of poly on it now, it's looking super! Doors will be here mid next week!

I should have the tank up and running by Wednesday night!

Just out of curiousity, how much did you pay for doors? I made mine, well, I have one of them almost done. They're raised panel doors like you would see on kitchen cabinets. It's one of those things where if you have the right tools, they're easy to make. But if you don't, they're impossible.

my stand just needs 1/4 ply, and some stain, and 2cotas of poly and it's finished.. it's just been really cold in cleveland for the past 2 weeks, and the garage is un usable even with the heater running.

have you designed a sump yet thai ? after the stand, that's my next project.. i have drawn up a couple of designs.. but still not sure which one i will be going with. hopefully i will figure that out soon. but seriously thai and yak your stands look great, i can't wait to see them, all decked out with doors

That's looking great! Thanks for making a photo journal of it all. I'm going to be making some stands this summer. I'm thinking about asking for a circular saw for my birthday in February

Thai it looks awesome! But As it sits now I would seriously consider screwing the doors and finding a smaller custom tank to fit the hole, epoxy the top, and you have one helluva mini-bar! Just kiddin' keep it up. I'm following closely.
