Yeah, so about the skin/trim. I went to HD
and bought some 1/4 "oak" plywood, when I got home I noticed it was a slightly different color/grain than the rest of the stuff I had laying around. When I looked at the sticked it said birch. I know I got it from the Oak shelf so either I had a brain fart or someone put it back in the wrong spot. Hopefully tommarow I can make another trip back to HD
and exchange the birch for Oak.
Only the front and right side will be covered as the tank will sit in the corner of the room. The sides will go higher than the "deck" so the frame of the tank will be hidden. I'll use only enough moulding to cover the corners and end of the plywood. I like to keep things as simple as possible.
