Just started to build the doors... The doors will be made by 1x3 and lauan .. They're going to be 4 doors but will be a bi-fold so it will be a complete open span. To access the sump.

It would depend on the amount of money you have at your disposal entirely.

Well went today to the HD today to buy the bit to make the raised panels for the doors of the stand. But when I grabed the bit I noticed that it had a 1/2" shank on it. Well my router only receives a 1/4" shank. So for me to use that bit I would have to buy a new router that accepts a 1/2"shank. Because they don't sell the. It in 1/4" shank. So I thought about it $99 for bit and $129 for new router. I decided to just do a flat panel instead of a raised panel. Hopefully it looks good.
