New DIY Stand for 30 gal

This was my summer project for my aquarium. Solid walnut. Let me know what you think.

I hate you.

Actually I'm just jealous and wish I had your talent.

Very nice! Is wood work another hobby or your profession?

Well it's actually a hobby of my dad's. I'm in veterinary school. He helped me a little with building it, showing me how to use the various tools and basic cabinet construction, but I designed it, told him what I wanted to do and he showed me how to go about doing it and let me do it. It was pretty fun building it. It definitely helped having the guidance of a skilled woodworker though.

That's double Cool, there will always be that Father/Son memory associated with that stand.
