    Question for wood working experts

    Hi folks! I have a somewhat odd dilemma here. Check the picture attached (I hope). After sitting my tank on the base, the following issue showed up.

    I would really like comments/suggestions from wood working experts.

    My thinking is the following:

    A) Remove the brace and put it back a little off-centered.

    B) Double it with an additional piece of wood and use a tool, similar to making a door-knob hole, to cut out the area I need to clear the bulk head.

    Thanks in advance!

    Yeah, I know. :-( When I hit the submit button, I briefly saw a message saying something about being validated by an admin. Or something along those lines. =8-)

    Yeah! It worked. The actual problem was the # of pixel. It had the required size but was bigger than 640X640 pixels. Lesson learned. =8-)

    need a bigger view, i mean more of the stand and tank. Is that a cross brace, if so you could just move it or put one either side. Cant really tell.

    If that is a cross member that is designed to keep the front and back rails parallel and spaced properly it likely isn't taking much of the weight. The tank dose not even appear to be in contact with it. I would use a cup saw to cut out an off centered hole big enough to allow you to attach the fitting to the bottom of the bulkhead when the tank is off the stand. So this hole will be JUST enough to do the job. Once the hole is cut laminate to the top of the uncut 1/2 of the board another piece of hardwood cut to the correct length for a snug fit. Glue and screw it into place. Pre-drill the holes for the screws so you and get them fully seated and not split the oak.

    you could do that all though you may have issues trying to get any fittings on/off in the furture. IMO it would be easier and less hassle for the future to put another cross brace next to that one (glued and screwed as rob suggested) and then take that brace out.

    The brace will end up looking like this.
