My DIY Aquarium Stand (pic)

Just thought I'd share. I also have a matching canopy that I built for my 26-Gallon "show." I'll post a complete pic of the whole setup soon.

Thanks for the comments ...

No plans--usually I'm a total documentation freak (as you can see here, but I didn't want to slow down the project at all since I have very little spare time these days. I built it with 4x4s, 2x4s, 7 ply (?) birch plywood, some clear pine, etc. Ton of stuff I threw together.The hardware pulls are from Restoration Hardware.

No, not a furniture maker --actually an attorney that does sales/business development work for a wireless voice & data provider. I built this because I was tired of being unable to find something that looked more like furniture than an aquarium stand.
