My first DIY stand!

I just built my first DIY 55gal stand. It has Douglas fir 4x4 legs and oak 2x4's for frames top and bottom. with miter joints over the legs. L brackets holding the legs to the frames. And a 1inch oak table top. I had three 200 lb people on it and it didnt even wobble creek or crack. so its ready to go

All i need to do is go pickup some thin plywood for the sides adn back and im all set. Its goin to hold a 55gal on top and my 30gal on the bottom

I will try and post pics tonight

Sounds like it is many times stronger than the stands the aquarium mfrs sell.
