6'x2'x2' Cabinet


Hi All,
I am planning to build my own aquarium cabinet.

Haven't done one before.

Hoping to make a nice one from pine, stain & varnish it.

Anyone got any plans or pictures or just basically HELP!

p.s. The wife says I can't do it, but now I see I have to prove her wrong.

Many Kindly Fishy Regards
Jason

Here's my beginning. I'll post the finished picture when I get home. There's a ton of DIY cabinets if you do a search. The attached picture is an 8' x 24" x24" glued and screwed. It really was not hard to do.

http://www.plantedtank.net/forums/di...iy-stands.html is a gold mine of ideas for designs of stands, and http://www.plantedtank.net/forums/di...ial-style.html is a simple, but very stylish way to make such stands.
