Default Early bird picks of my stand plan

While my tanks sits...here's some pics of my stand plan. Overall 24" L X 18" W X 28" H.

I decided to keep it 18" wide while my tank is 15" so that I have 3" at the back to arrange background lights

The pieces I need are

Top - 24" X 18"
Bottom - 24 " X 17 1/4"
Sides (X 2) - 26 1/2" X 17 1/4"
Back (X 2) - 26 1/2" X 9"
Front Upper - 24" X 4"
Front Lower (Door) - 24" X 23 1/4"
Front & Back Frames (X4) = 21" X 2"
Side Frames (X4) = 16.5" X 2"

All 3/4" thick. Here are a few pics of the model and how a 4' X 8' can be cut out in all these pieces. A plank this size costs average $20-60 depending upon material. No idea what cutting charges they might apply.

The last picture is how I visualize both stands side by side with the "light bars" behind (light bar design is incomplete though )
