well keep those pictures coming and we will be able to build our own at the end of your class........ But sure does look good... alot better than the one my dad built me.... (not so sure he knows what a square is...
Looks great, nicely done! I like the fact that the bottom inside creates a trough, if it was sealed well, that could catch water if there is ever an accident.
What type of flooring will this stand be on? I'm curious why you chose to have the stand/tank weight supported on 6 legs instead of spreading the weight out by keeping the bottom 2X4's flush on the bottom?
I lowered it for that purpose and the sides are caulked. The stand will be sitting on concrete, so the loading is ok. I like the look of it from the side view, doesn't look "clunkly" almost like furniture.
I have made a stand out of 3/4" oak using the same building technique. If I can get over to my "buddies" house and take a picture of it, i'll post it. Looked awsome.
counting the hours until that bad boy is in my house with the new tank sitting on top of it. you are doing a great job charles, i am glad i didnt try to make it myself with my jigsaw and dremel in my kitchen like i was planning to do originally!
