Does anyone know how to make a rimless tank?

Hi I'm looking for steps on how to make a 20 gallon long rimless aquarium. I'm only 15 so I'll be having my dad help me. I need dimensions, thickness of glass, and anything else that you can think of. Thank you have an awesome day!

Have a look at videos on YouTube by DIY Aquapros: he has a few on removing the rim from tanks and converting them to rimless:

I really like his channel. I just wish he'd hold his camera still.

I've been following his channel for a while, so I must have, but I'll be darned if I can recall it...

Where's that dollar per gallon sale when your need it? Makes me want to get a brand new 20g long and strip the rims. The algae growing in the seams of my current Planted tank is so unsightly.

It's be cheaper to buy a Mr aqua 20 long. I've priced out cut/polished glass and it's actually more expensive than buying brand name.
