Great looking stand, way overbuilt for a 12 gallon tank but peace of mind is paramount. Bummer on the doors.

Looks real good, you gonna stain it, or just put some laquer on it? It'll look great either way. Good job, probably better built than the ones you buy in the store.

You might be able to find some doors at your local Habitat for Humanity store.

*update*

so i had the day off today... so i sanded the heck outta the stand... the doors are still a bit uneven but at least they close... i also stained and polyed the stand... after the black stain / poly the stand looks very nice... and u dont notice the uneven doors unless you look really close...

i also received the tank /light/substrate/seiryu rocks/ filter/ heater today... so im almost ready to go... the only thing left is the wood from tom... (yep.. i want toms wood :P )

i cant post pictures right now cuz image shack is down for me... but when im able to ill post
