40 Breeder build - DIY Red Oak Stand
So, not long ago i built my tiled top 20 long stand with a slide out sump. i knew i was going to upgrade eventually being that the tank was meant to be a saltwater. i ended up making it a moderately planted tank. now it has since grown on me and i wanted to go bigger. and you can't beat 40 bucks for a 40 breeder. and on top of that it holds just under 50 gallons. so i bought the 40 breeder. and seeing that my 20 long stand had limited space inside it because of the 2x4 framing i, i was against framing this stand. I've seen people build plywood stands using the kreg joint tool and thought why couldn't i make it from oak boards and capitalize on space is save without the framing.
now here is a picture of my design. it's not petty considering i used excel but i want to hear your concerns and comments. take into account that every board will be joined together using the kreg tool. even the side boards.
any and all advice before i spend the major bucks on the wood would be great. price isn't too much of an issue but i also don't want something to go wrong after i put all that time and money into it.
I'll keep the updates and pictures coming as soon as i get them. i promise. lol.
Bump: I tried to get it as close to scale as possible.
