Lots of people have made their own stands, myself included, so I thought it'd be a nice idea to bring all the plans together and maybe save a little time searching through loads of threads for those that are interested in building their own.
My plans here I just knocked up in Paint. I used stuff we had lying around so dimensions were kind of made up as I went along to suit. It is designed for a 48"x15" tank base but will accommodate upto 48"x18". I based it on flat pack designs but made it with better materials and it will hold anything. It has internal shelves which are removable and I just cut holes in the back panel to get all the tubes and power cables through.
The top has an edge trim in oak which was just glued on to make it look pretty. The base was screwed to the sides through the bottom. The back is glued and screwed to the sides. The top is just screwed on from inside the cabinet like in the attached pic. The doors have a little grove down the opening edge (see pic) so they are easy to open. Everything was painted in an outdoor waterproof wood stain, the kind of stuff you treat doors and windows with.
Sorry but I didn't have a camera when I made it so there is only a finished pic.
So lets see your stands and plans posted in this thread. Comments also welcome.
