Very nice!
Those look to be solid boards. Are you not concerned with getting movement or are they pretty stable woods?

I agree! That stand could just stand on its own in a room!

Very nice wood working skills. I really like the Tasmanian blackwood one. Way better looking than the industrial gray look of an actual ADA one.

Pretty sure I'd sell my soul for that Tasmanian blackwood with the Danish oil finish. Why do you have to live in Australia?

I'm curious about this as well. I've never had good luck with solid slab doors on my aquarium cabinets because they inevitably end up warping a bit unless I incorporate some sort of supporting strap, but then again I've only ever used cheap pine, spruce or poplar not the awesome fanciness that you have here.

how are the panels of the stand held together? is it just glue or are you using dowel? dovetails?
Im interested in how its all held together

It is definitely all plywood based on the grain. Absolutely gorgeous woods. I'm glad to see you covered the exposed plys on all but the first.

Any reason you went with dimensional lumber in the center instead of just adding a center panel? Or are you planning on room for a sump?

Absolutely great work.
