Question on stand build
I am in the process of building a 7 foot stand for a 90g and 65g side by side.
Using rocket engineers stand plans, I am using 2x6 top frame.
There are support legs under the 2x6 where the 2 tanks meet.
After building the top frame I've noticed that one of the 7 ft 2x6 is narrower on one end by about 1/16 (on the 5.5"), I realized this after as it was on the bottom against the floor during assembly. The top 2x6 frame is glued and screwed.
I usually put styrofoam under my tanks, but 1/16 on a corner makes me a little nervous.
I was thinking of putting it with the imperfection on the top so that the top frame sits on the legs perfectly, building it up with plastic wood and topping it with some 3/4 plywood I have.
Any thoughts or suggestions?
