Sometimes you just have to flex your woodworking muscles. The funny thing is that my freinds and family told me I was dumb for wanting to pick this log up because it was only about 4’ long. “You’re not going to be able to make anything out of that”. Oh ya!! And yes the curved front was a blast to make.

No better motivator than someone telling you it can’t be done! I am impressed that you started with a log – turned out great!

The tank is a 75 gallon I think. There are four 2 1/2” posts in the corners for support. The old fishtank light is plugged in to a socket on the stand and theres a switch on the top to run the light

You didn’t mention what type of wood it’s made of. Birch? Soft maple?

I have a 155 gal. bow front stand I just started. It’s made out of Maple plywood, wrapped in cherry raised door panels. This will be my first attempt at an arched front door.

Did you design it so it slides in from the back? Are the corner pieces removable?

Very nice aquarium “stand”. More like a piece of art.

Have your say...
