Made a stand! well kinda (56k warning)

So this is my first attempt at building a stand. I went with 2x4 for the frame and just picked up some appearance boards from Lowe's. Nothing special. The stand is 5ft long by 14in wide 30 3/4 tall. I used various sizes boards to skin it. 1x2 all the way up to 1x8. The doors are held in place with magnets. Which will allow me to have plenty of space to work under there. I also have a power strip that I will add. Let me know what you guys and gals think.

Thank you. I think it should be good to hold a 29g and a 10g.

Well done, the stain job gives a nice rustic look with the visible wood grain

Awesome build. I'm assuming the magnets are the only fasteners for the doors. Consider that idea "borrowed". I never thought of that. That would make for super access to the area under the tank.

You can steal that idea I might have to add one or 2 more magnets maybe stronger ones. It doesn't take much force to remove them.

But I have the tanks on the stand and boy I need to get wire hider thingy.
