Yeah. I am wondering about that. A gallon weighs what, around 7 pounds? So 7 x 50 = 350 pounds? That's a lot for some of this cheap press wood or balsa furniture made in the last 15 years.
A friend offered me the attached. The top is two pieces that can expand outwards... but closed it is about 38" wide with about a 1/16" dip in the middle (see the photo with a metal dowel in it). I'm thinking this should work just fine. It is REAL wood and heavy as all get out.
What do you think? All he wants for it is for me to haul it away and a 12 pack of Guinness.
Do you think I need to worry about that little dip? If so, any thoughts on what I can put under the tank? Felt or something that can crush?
