Okay. You're starting to get on my nerves a little bit.

Beautifully done stand and canopy

I'm not a fan of the clear pine look and the door strap hinges draw my eyes to that feature first so please don't take that wrong. Everyone has a preferred style and that is not one of mine.

This is an extremely impressive build! The whole design and accents makes it looks so well put together You should start building and selling similar set ups! You'd be rolling in the $$$!

Nice job on the build! Really like your use of trim boards.
I recently built an entire stand out of only 2x4's and a small amount of plywood. Made all my own trim work (likely wont be doing that again LOL)

I bought a hobbyist grade set of paints and brushes, and tried them out this afternoon. How do you like my first effort:




Yes, that is indeed a very nice piece of furniture, and probably a very good aquarium stand.

Very nice job! I especially like the arched center; I've been planning a similar feature on the stand I'll be building soon, but I'm thinking of using doors that can be removed (without much trace of it), in case I decide to put a smaller tank on the bottom. Good job on the router work, too, it really adds to the overall look.

I was going straight to rubbish until I saw the skeleton in the tank. He saved you.

It's nice though. Way more intense than anything I've ever built.

Yeah picked up one of those toy models out of boredom the other day. Slapped some glue and paint on it. Looks terrible...
