Exclamation A 55 gallon tank stand building in progress.

I am an novice at construction and am building my own stand. so far i have the frame wich is constructed of 104 inch 2 x4s i bought 8 just in case but i think i may only need about 7. I will be posting every step from start to finish and with pictures! more to come also i am creating a downloadable version for the ones that like to have a "clean" hard copy i.e. no web junk. The finished product will be finished in mahogany and stained with a red mahogany coat, only problem i cannot find that type of stock here.

Good luck. I just finished a 20 Long stand in the ADA style. My biggest problem was a lack of confidence. Once I got started I realized how simple a tank stand is. It's great building your own. You can construct in to look and function any way you want and you save lots of money. Have fun!
