Just use 2 x 4's & skin it! The results are great & ROCK SOLID! (Plus, it's inexpensive & most people can do it themselves with nothing more than a Skill saw & miter box. You could use just a Skill saw, but, I find it's better with a miter saw to get nice perpendicular cuts. Plus you can use the miter to trim out your stand & make it look that much better. I have built numerous stands for myself & others. All using 2 x 4's for the "skeleton" (or 2 x 6's on larger tanks like 125 & above). I'm in the process of rebuilding a "built-in" that some one was using as a stand for a 125. The built-in was built using 1 x 4 oak. It looks nice, but, the whole thing sank one the front & is leaning to one side now. I think the built-in was originaly for an entertainment center. I just bought the house & one of the things I liked about it was the 125 Gal. tank. If anyone is interested, PM me & I'll send out pics... I may end up doing a Thread about the whole build if anyone is interested... Just PM me & let me know. I'll try to take as many pics as I can, I know how we all love pics! LOL!
