White Pine

Is that an okay wood to use? My dad has some extra white pine 2x4's and was wondering if I could use those for my stand....

I don't know anything about wood, but I know most of the manufacturers make their stands out of pine.

Have you decided what type of stand to build? Are you using the GARF plans or something else?

To answer your question, white pine 2 x 4's are perfectly OK for the tank stand. It's easy to cut and it stains/paints well. Just make sure that the pieces you have aren't warped or twisted.

Im going to use plans for fishtips.com and double check with the garf plans as well
I will have to check with my dad to see if they are warped or twisted.. they might have been outside for a few weeks which concerns me
