Kg's 55 gallon tank stand **56k**

So The more money I started spending on my tank the more uneasy I started to feel about the wonderful $100 Wal-Mart stand that was below it holding up my investment. This stemmed the idea of building a stand, and here is the long process:

Started off with basic 2x4 construction of the framework:

Once that was done I cut 1x4's to size for nailers. The sole
Purpose for this addition is to give an even surface for the ply-wood to be nailed to.

Once that was done, I attached the ply wood pieces I had cut to size.

Quick coat of primer and paint and we are on our way to getting some doors.

I didn't get a picture after the black paint.

Construction of the doors below.....
