DIY A H Supply 2x55 Canopy (55G)
Went to home depot and purchased a 1x4x7', 1x6x7', 1x12x5', and a 1x2x2'. All poplar. Also in the mix were #16 1-1/4" finishing nails, waterproof wood glue, Cherrywood stain/poly, and hinges. I did splurge though, and got 2 7' lenghts of 3/4" molding that looked pretty slick. Total cost was a little under $60, and about 2 1/2 hours of my time today.
I am going to stain and seal it tomarrow. Lights will be here wednesday.
After the lights are installed under the hood, I will enclose the bottom half of the tank, and use the same type of molding. I think it will look pretty slick when I'm done. I took a few pics of it, but my camera is a pretty cheap one, an doesn,t do it much justice.
