    Default 20L tank stand build


    2 Not allowed!
    Instead of spending a small fortune on a tank stand for my 20L I am going to put in my son's room, I decided I would use what I had laying around. I did buy some pine paneling for the skin, but now I am debating on what to use/how to build the door for it. It weighs about 50 lbs, I think, so I am trying not to add much more wood to it being as I have probably gone overkill on it already. It definitely is not going to buckle at this point. Any suggestions would be appriciated.

    For some reason, the first 2 picks are sideways. Just hold your head to the left lol

    Thanks. It would have turned out way better if I had a jointer and a planer.

    Be sure to use a piece of foam board between the tank and the top of the stand.

    Stand came out very nice.
