Bulkhead access from stand?

The top of my new stand is solid wood, I had to drill out the holes to fit the plumbing and bulkheads. The concern is I cannot tighten the bulkheads if they would become lose at this point. Will I ever need to do this? If so then I am going to have to figure out way to make the holes I drilled today larger, which is going to be a pain, as I did not have much room as it is with the one being right at the back of the stand.

bulkhead wrench should let you get in there from undernat and tighten should the need every arise, which it shouldn't.

at this point bulkhead wrench won't fit, so I think I am going to need to try and make holes larger.

do a leak test before you put the substrate in, if it doesnt leak you are fine. don't put to much torch on the bulkheads, you will feel it.
After that you will never have to touch the bulkheads.
