Maple ply and trim Aquarium stand built in my tiny garage a few years ago. I found these nifty knobs at Lowes.

Really nice, would be nice to have a picture with the fish inside.

Looks great, can you tell me
What thickness ply you used? I am planning to build something similar.

3/4” cabinet grade ply that runs all the way from the floor to the inside edges of bottom of the aquarium with the trim around so none of the load goes onto any of the joints or on the trim, but instead straight down the length of the ply. 55 gallon aquarium weighs between 400-500 lbs depending on live rock and whatnot.
