DIY is always the most fun. That's going to be a awesome project. However make sure you consider cost of glass(can be steep), testing area and hauling it from there to the stand. Those were my main concerns when i was contemplating making my 100g and essentially the reasons i backed off since i did not have the time to do due diligence for all of it.
Good luck on the build. Will keep checking this.
