Question Stand Question

My friend who has some extra wood is putting together a simple 30x30x12 stand for my 20L. My question is, what and where do I buy the side paneling and the door for it? I have seen some but I am not sure if im searching for the right things?

I figured a few unfinished panels might be a few bucks but jeez!

home depot or lowe's? You can try and rig a piece of wood with hinges and a nob screwed into it?
What type of wood are you using? 2x4's? I was wanting to make a stand for my new 20L Just need suggestions on supplies

Home Depot used to sell kitchen cabinets that you assembled yourself, and they looked good. You could buy the doors separately, since it was the doors that set the style of the cabinet. So, you could use those doors as either actual doors or panels. You would just need to find the right dimensions and adjust the stand design to match the available dimension doors. I don't know if HD still sells that type of cabinet, but it would be easy to check.
