Home built tank base


Greetings,

Thought I would share my home made tank base. First I used all pressure treated wood for the weight. Bottom rail is 2x6 top rails are 2x4 The same pattern that you see on top is the same under the luon except its 2x6. I used carriage bolts except in the middle top I used tapcon screws. The back and floor base 1/4 luon. The doors sides and top are made out of pine. The tiles you see are travertine along with the handles. The handles are home made also. Making those was a pain in the buttocks! The stand is for a 120 gal tank. I just couldnt see spending all of that money on a stand that was only 1/2inch plywood on edge. Kind of a start to finish photo presentation.

Looks cool from what I can see. The photos are a bit small.

Nice job.

Just found this site, I wasn't sure the size of my pictures. I wanted to stay within the picture up load guide lines. Thanks for the complement.

You can use an outside photo storage site like photobucket if you want then direct link the image into this site.
