@gatekeeper - thanks! i have cut the doors, just need to laminate and paint them. i bought a pot cutter to sink pots into the doors for the hinges, and i have test cut a couple on some scraps to get the fit just right. they wont be 100% flush with the bottom, coz for the time being the stand will be on a tiled floor, but i want to be able to open the doors even if the stand is sitting on a carpet so there will be a few mm clearance between the bottom of the doors and the bottom of the stand.

@xjaypex - i got it here in south africa, there is a company called pg bison here that makes it.

@born2lovefish - thanks!

Have you considered making a "pedestal" from a single sheet of plywood or a frame of similar thickness wood, to put under the tank and avoid any door interferrence with carpeting, etc? I have had problems when I haven't used a pedestal of some kind.

Thats where I was going with Hoppy, thank you.

I here what your saying slippers, but what hoppy just eluded too would be the easy fix if you do have carpeting issues (especially if your on a plush carpet).
