DIY stand for 125g

My wife bought me a 125g tank for Christmas so I decided to build the stand to save some money. Here's a few pics of the stand going through it's progress. I have 150 invested in materials. I have way to many pics to post so I just did a condensed version.

nice, simple, solid build. I'm pretty sure it will easily support an automobile.

Simple and sturdy. I would go for 2X4 rather than 2X6 at the top but I see the reason for it in your case to get the doors placed as you did. When I look at other people's stands, I have to try to see it from their point. Often the one building has a different reason than I might.
Looks good and the biggest point for me? You DID it rather than just thinking about it!
Good show!
