It has been some time since I last posted a project. I have now completed a support base for a 220 gallon Aquarium.
In the first photo you see the Aquarium in the back ground and you can see just how big it is. I used 2×6 ruff cut lumber and milled it flat and straight. In picture number 4 you will see the floating top that I made that can be adjusted with shims to ensure that the tank sits flat. Last photo is showing one of the blank post before I turn it on the lathe. I made the doors and also turn the little door handles.

Once the aquarium is on top of its new base I will post the picture.

All comments are welcome (good or bad) as that is the only way to improve on ones self.

That is a beautiful aquarium stand and you did a wonderful job on it.
