I tried to reenforce an ikea dresser to hold my 55gal and it's not working out. Does anyone have any plans they used to build a stand or suggestions on what wood to use? I don't want anything fancy basically just a table I can put it on and maybe space to store stuff below.
Looking good! Can't tell from the pic; will there be holes drilled in the back of the cabinet? I like running the electrical cords through the holes and placing power strips in the cabinets. Can make it easier to plug/unplug devices (I usually put the filters and heater on the same power strip and toggle it off during water changes). Also, some spice rack style metal shelves attached to the doors are great for fish food and water conditioners.
