|alphabeta||what hinges did you use? What overlay?|

|fplata||You can always use a small strap and anchor the stand to the wall. I guess that is the prudent thing to do if you have kids|

I finally put a tool rack in my stand after a month haha.. It's an 18' magnetic holder that I got on sale for $4.00. Instead of screwing in the tool rack, I simply put some double sided tape on each end and the middle. It's not going anywhere and it was a lot quicker and easier.

Maybe it's simply the weight of the door. You've got the general idea, just the ADA stands have 3/4" reveal around the whole bottom, but he front reveal is created when the door is added. From the pics it looks like you added the reveal at the front, and now the door makes another.
Whateva, it looks good anyway! As long as it stand upright... Otherwise the logistics of tank maintanence could be interesting.

|gotplants||I think kitchen and bath sinks don't fall forward like that because they're pretty much stuck to the wall. The door is pretty heavy on the ADA stand and when I opened the door and tilted it to the front a bit, it would fall forward. This is what happened when there was nothing on it. Thankfully the stand doesn't fall forward now that the tanks weight is on top of it..|

This is the bottom of my ADA sand built to ADA specs. How could it possibly be unstable? The bottom right pic shows the reveal and the door goes against the edge forming the final reveal where you can see it lacking.

Filled up the tank.
CAUTION - Do not make a toe kick!! The front of the tank is really unstable because of it.. Since it was the first diy stand I made, there were many mistakes, this being the biggest one. When building an ADA stand, build it normally and put a 3/4" piece of plywood underneath so the door will be able to open. Don't make the toe kick! I now have to put a piece of wood to support the front end in case the thing gets shaken so it doesn't fall and create a huge disaster..
