Aquariums have always appealed to me so when my son, Paul, expressed a sincere interest in fish I started shopping for used equipment. Of course the really great deals we either ‘just sold’ or I never git a response from the seller to my inquiries. So I headed down to the local pet store and bought a ‘starter kit’ which included all the stuff you need for the aquarium but no stand for the tank to rest on.
This is my fastest project yet…and even stranger I finished it without the traditional prolonged stay on my project ‘staging’ area; the place in my shop where started projects go to pass out if my memory LOL!
It isn’t elegant construction by any means but I promised myself that I wasn’t going to over think it and demand crippling perfection. I just had fun and got it built after getting some advice from fellow LJs (http://lumberjocks.com/topics/62414).
I am told we are not allowed to eat fish sticks in front of the guppies now:-) and I was not allowed to name any if the fish either LOL!
