Slow going...
Need to finish the top and stain it. There will be an opening for the tub and a shelf for potted plants.

I finally finished this last week.
Often I end up wasting time with DIY projects - it doesn't turn out like I want and I end up ditching the whole thing. For a change it worked out as planned and I'm happy with it

Very interesting!
What sort of plumbing is there? Circulation pump?

Yes - Just a powerhead with a sponge on the intake. The slats the potted plants are sitting on can be removed so I can add a 2nd tub or put a bigger tank inside. The inside dimensions are just a little too small to hold a 55g unfortunately.
