Recently broke ground on my 75 gallon reef tank build and figured I would get a thread rolling. My current set up is a 72 bowfront seen below. I aquired the tank and stand about a year ago and recently made the decision to upgrade to a new 75 gallon tank, and build a custom stand.
This is an older picture of the tank after about 4 months or so...
Started working on the new stand about two weeks ago with a good friend. Began with cutting and assembling the top and bottom frames using all 2x4's and a 2x6 for the top front beam.
Following with getting the legs cut and put together using an L shaped design with 2x4.
Then cut the two pieces to completed the front two legs using 2x6's.
Drilled the pocket holes and fastened the frame together.
Frame all put together.
