    last set...







    I have tongue and groove pine for the outside that I will install this week, then I can start to paint it. I am painting the interior space white and the exterior satin black. The area directly behind the tank will have a cover after I get the rest of the plumbing installed and tested.

    Wow! Incredibly well done, Mike. =] Are you an architect or engineer, by chance? This was really planned out quite well and the craftsmanship is superb. I'm envious of your skills. ;]

    Thanks Kevin! My background is in carpentry, finish carpentry to be exact. I don't work in the field any longer though. I am an IT manager for a software company that specializes in construction estimating. I am always looking for something to keep my skills sharp.

    Looks like some good progress
    If you take your time to do the research FIRST, you can successfully set-up and keep ANY type of aquarium with ease.

    Looks really good. To begin with i was wondering how you were planning to make the stand flush with the bow front but i can see that you didnt botehr in the end. Probably the right thing to do than complicate things!

    Loving the sump setup and looking forward to more progress
    Fiiiiiiiiiiissssshhhhhh!

    I didn't bother with matching the bowfront radius. It makes for a lot of extra work and since it is just in my office I didn't need the 'wow' factor. Here are a few more pics I took this morning. You can see I started on the T&G wainscoting. I need to pick up some trim and design the doors still.
