'Bout the prettiest stand I've ever seen. Excellent work!

|Green_Flash||just curious, how much was the raw wood and total cost to build the stand?|

Besides, I was referencing the pine he has stored for another project, which he said was from a 2000 year old tree.

|c_gwinner||This stand is just gorgeous and super jealous. Nice craftsmanship and detail you put into it too.|

wow, that's seriously beautiful... To Hoppy's point, I'm a little shocked you used the same wood throughout as it seems a little overkill but you've definitely created a showpiece.
I thought I'd spent too much when I went with black walnut for the face of my ADA inspired stand but you've gone way above and beyond

I love the figuring in that wood. Love to use it in a cabinet project. One thing on biscuits. They go great with a little butter on them.
OK seriously. Don't count on them for any real strength. Testing has proven that they add little to none. The glue is doing 98% of the holding. (I was an avid biscuit user for a long time) The last two years I've been using a tongue and dado for strength and alignment. "Discovered" it at a wood working show/sale/expo here in Florida. I resisted for a while (old methods were too ingrained) and now I can't believe how easy it makes things go. Like other joinery it's not for all situations. The skill comes from knowing when to use something and when not.
Your cabinet bottom appears to be just a butt joint. Why no dado to give support and eliminate the need for the metal ells?

|sayurasem||Nice work! But the stand might steal my attention from the aqua scape itself.|
