DIY Stand

Since summer is coming up soon and school is going to end in a few months, I want to be prepared a project for the summer. I was thinking of making a nice custom made stand for my 20 gallon high, and possibly a stand that holds 2 10 gallons.

If anybody has made custom made stands for a 10, and 20g please post pics or direct me to a site that has good information on building a stand.

I havr built a stand for mr 90 Gal. . . it is still standing so I guess I did just fine. I havent built any for smaller tanks but I will offer myself as a sounding board.
Good luck!

I did one that holds a 29g plus another 29g as a sump. I'm setting it up as a reef. It's not a professional stand, but it's solid and it's not too bad looking. My wife is letting me keep it in the living room so it passed the spouse test at least. I'll be building a hood for the 300w of VHO lighting next and then an overflow.

Check out this site, they've got DIY for just about everything:

I can think of a couple of other forums that have massive DIY areas. I'll send them to you in a pm.

diy stand plans

Check out this site. If you hit the DIY stand key in the middle of the page, it'll take you to a tool that will design the stand for you. Just enter the measurements and it'll give you the cuts and a diagram.
