You do nice work? I like that you went st class using all premium wood. With your skill, why use the metal brackets for the base? I'd think dowel rod pins would be a nice touch.
I would like to see this stand in place with a tank. I 'm curious how it looks in a home or office. The wood is very interesting, I just wonder if the grain is a distraction.
I think that this wood grain might make an interesting front door to a home or a large dinner table.
