I am going to use modified plans from the net to replace the stand I have for my 50g. It won't be the least expensive that I could have, (The old table I'm using now set me back 15 dollars at a used furniture place.) I am planning to use red oak 2x2, 2x4, and 1x3 lumber for the frame rather than pine 2x4 studs. I found out that I can order 3/8" plywood with one side finished with cherry and will use that for the front and sides. I will have a friend make three raised panel doors out of 1/2" cherry stock. I will have about $400 in lumber and a lot of time but that should fit in with the rest of the furniture around here. All finished in dark cherry stain and poly finish coat.
