Ideas for a tank stand.

Hi,
I plan on making another custom tank stand. It is for a 29 gallon tank. I am looking for non-traditional design ideas. The standard rectangular box is definatly out.

Thanks for any helpfull ideas you guys might offer.

How about integrated stand? Say a shelf above the tank and shelves or a cabinet to the side. Something more like a wall unit. I currently have a 29 sitting on a standard pine cabinet that's painted black. A year ago or so, I added a top shelf to it intended for a small 2-5 gal tank or a book/flower shelf. I used black steel 5-foot water pipes and T's to make 2 giant L's. I bolted them down to the stand. Looks kind of primitive, but it did the job then. Now, with the new house and new everything, it doesn't look as good. Once I finish floors and painting, I might take up building a new stand.
