Some of you may have noticed that the stand and canopy was slightly deeper on the rear side of the tank and that is fully intended because I want to push the stand up against the wall to hide all the junk that will be running from top to bottom. so here are the pictures of the tank and canopy finished with side panels to hide the junk!! In the pictures below you can also see the continuous hinge we used to make it possible for the canopy to fold back onto itself.

Finished build pics of the stand and canopy.

And one more

For the build we used pine 2x4's to build the frame, red oak 1/2" plywood for the paneling, 1/2" corner guard on the corners and to hide the cut marks, quarter round oak on the bottom edge of the stand and the trim is the big orange box standard trim made from rose wood.
