DIY 120gal cabinet

Well at last finally got my cabinet about done for my latest PT project all the woodwork is complete.
Today got a couple of coats of stain on it, just got to do a coat of sanding sealer, sand it & clear coat. Then it's hang the doors, sit the tank on then shoot the trim on.




Here are a couple of pics of the unassembled cabinet prior to staining, would have taken some after but the batteries took a dump... Oh well will take some more of it when it gets put together.

Pete

30" tall, as the tank is 24" I can easily reach the bottom. Plus when I sit on the sofa, eyelevel will be approx 6" above the substrate.... get a better view, rather than having to look upwards

3/4" Clear Pine as it was free, kind of.
Don't know if I would build another, but at least it is the exact size I needed. Will be setting it up this weekend.....Aahh at last
