Just thought I would share with you guys the stand I made for my Fluval Spec v.

It is completely made out of all reclaimed wood so the total cost of build was £0.00

A simple frame was made then the sides and doors where cladded with pallet wood. Solid oak was used for the top which was an off cut of a kitchen worktop.

I then painted the outside with some chalk paint with I had lying around.

This is the first time I have ever made anything like this so I'm ecstatic about the finished product. It turned out exactly how I pictured it in my head which is a rarity.

Sweet. Here in the states many pallets are made of oak. Not the best quality oak but if you plane it down it's stainable.
