Rballi's 240 Altum Angelfish Tank (biotope?)

Got the rough lumber cut to finish the stand. Going with some home grown Douglas fir that was harvested on my father in laws property. He cut it down for me, pretty amazing piece of machinery. Panels are 3/16", and will be glued to 1/8" mdf for stability. I think I will be using rare earth magnets to attach them to the stand. I like the idea of simply removing the panels for maintenance and it will look really clean.

Douglas fir is known for its stability, so I only need to let them dry for about 2-3 weeks before working with them. Going to be only sanding and adding several coats of poly.
