I have always wanted to build an aquarium from scratch and have finality gotten around to doing so. I didn't want to make a standard shape or anything too tall on my first attempt so I went with a shallow cube design. I made a scale model to get a feel for what I wanted it to look like. There is a journal of it here: 1.75G Custom Cube
I have started construction on the stand and the tank itself is now complete. I hope to complete the stand this weekend and gather some more materials.
Here is the progress so far:

Started Work on the stand. It will have a large door on front for easy access to the sump:
Looks like I measured correctly. The tank should fit snugly after I add trim to the stand:
Updates to come...
