So I've been searching around and no one really builds their stand out of plywood. Well I started looking at them in the lfs
and found out they aren't built from much. Well I upgraded tanked the same time as my cousin and we both used 3/4 ply. He has a 80gal and I have a 55. Here are some pictures of my stand build.
Determining the size and where to put it.
Of course building it in my garage every night. Used 3/4 birch if I can remember correctly. For the edges I used that iron on veneer which ended up perfectly.
Used corner brackets for the top and bottom and couple L brackets for the shelves. I ended up using the top two shelves for shoes than bottom for all the wires and plugs, food, fish accessories.
