    Stand Update






    I'm going to throw a few more supports and then try to figure out how the front will look.  I need a door(or 2) but don't want to change the style of the stand.....Any ideas?

    IJO that work looks awesome. How big a tank is going on it?
    I would want to cut 3/4" spruce plywood into panels to fit snugly inside your internal frame.  I would  also shore up the front pillar between the doors. Maybe with more 3/4" plywood strips (2).
     The joinery on the thins frame peives looks good. How are you doing it? Do you have a wood shop hidden in your house?   ???

    Yeah, it does look awesome. Hope you have a bill of materials for posting. For the doors, you could cut the front panel in half, mount top and bottom tracks and sliding doors sideways, or even simpler, install inside european kitchen cabinet hinges, (no hardware shows) and doors open to the front.

    I think the plywood idea is great... thanks.  I bring my measurements to homedepot and they cut all the wood for me, I bring it home, and put it together(all thats needed it a drill).  I wish I had a shop in my house... no idea where I would put it though....(Cody.. your sleeping on the couch hehe).

    Salty Dog... my original plan was the sliding panel... but I wasn't able to figure it out without the slides showing.  I might just have to go with the 2 door method you explained. Thanks
