Help with 100G Canopy tank stand

Wanted to build a tank and canopy stand for my 100G tank. Figured it would be cost efficient. I have access to get supplies for much cheaper than retail. Anyone have any advice how to begin or any good links to get started? Dimensions: 72x18x17

Will be a plumbed reef system. If any pictures are needed, please feel free to let me know.

Did my own thing for my 125g , started with the stand , 4x4 for each corner and center front and rear . Used 2x12 for base support and 2x6 for upper . 3/4 finished ply for the deck upper and lower .then 1/4 hardwood ply to wrap it added some phigre for ascetics and the stand was done , oh all cross member were 2x4 , I did not bothere with a canopy , just glass and lights . Went simple on filtration , canister and UV sterilizer only , never had any problems . That was a saltwater tank , I'm old school and like to keep it simple .
