Your planning is exceptional sir. *bows*

Any plans for concealing the bend in the other room? Perhaps like a "fake" cabinet or something?

Everything will be hidden eventually.............

Bookcase is stained and I got the pump platform finished and in place. This is the final layout for everything as well. I think I have all the routing worked out in my head pretty good.

All that gear looks bad a$$ and fun to play with, man it just keeps piling up. It stinks that in Texas you need an air conditioner for your warm water tank, does that work both ways as a chiller and heater so you just set it to 84 degrees and walk away?

The stain looks good and matches the rest of the room nicely.

Wow very much so. Looks like it came built with the house. Perfectly matches the cross beams and window/door frames!

LOL, I hired someone to do the cabinetry work. After seeing how he made it though, I could have easily done it myself with a couple of proper power tools, like a planer.

Beautiful tank and top quality build! Definitively a "Texas" sized build.

The only thing that would make it look better is water in the tank. That wall looks like it was part of the original blueprints, looks awesome.
