This thread makes me want to burn my store-bought stand and build a new one!

My first stand I built with a hand circular saw, a router, a belt & a palm sander. And still looked pretty good if I do say so myself. LOL

That looks great! I like the drawer!

One thing I am thinking about adding to my stand is a cabinet lock to keep the kids out (6,4 and 2).

Default 36 Gallon Bowfront Stand

I came across this thread while poking around in the DIY area, so I thought I would post pictures of a stand I just finished. Aquarium is not set up yet, but my plants should arrive soon, so we're close. I love all the different designs people have come up with. Woodworking is hobby that works well with aquariums and fish keeping!

Well these are pics of my stand, semi -Diy.

i used an old metal shelf, welded the top to and old metal dumbell rac k to the top and painted it black.

When I get the gumption, I am going to wrap it in Hardibacker and tile the outside with slate.

granted, it's not a planted tank, but it's still a stand. lol.







Later,

BE CAREFUL WITH THOSE OUTLETS IN THE CABINET! I would throw some GFI outlets in there if your going to keep them that way.
