I got a new tank and I am building a stand to save money I got some plans from www.garf.org DIY areaIPB ImageI started with some lumber I bought at lowes.Lowes will even cut the lumber at some locations I cut my own here is the frame all cut
IPB Image
The mini Kregg jig makes screwing the wood together easy and it is strong
IPB Image
Here is the top and bottom frame
IPB Image
Next I put the uprights in and the top and bottom shelf
IPB Image
I added some pannels
IPB Image
This is as far as I got so far I will add some stain and trim

Nice good_very.gif

However, suggest you put a piece of styrofoam (at least 1/2 inch thick) on stand before placing your tank; for even weight distribution.
