60P ADA Style Aquarium Stand

Going to give a diy ada style stand a try. I'll post progress in case anyone else is interested in doing the same project. The drawing is loaded on sketchup. Following the guide below:

Interested to see how this turns out for you. Very tempted to try this myself but I have very little experience with projects like this and the tools required.

Yeah, this is my first wood project and I have none of the tools.

Had a bit of a learning curve with the formica. Took a bit to figure out the finishing laminate bit. And I have cuts all over the place.

now you make it look so simple. I will try as I get bit free. So what is the learning you had with formica?

and in this pic, what are those little curve cuttings you did on top part?

Those are the biscuits from the biscuit joiner. The trim bit I think only goes 1/8" down on the router so that it doesn't burn the formica on the front. And I think I would sand it down more to get the edge really cleaned up.
