Made this enclosure for the biggest fish tank I’ve ever seen. Had to be a couple of hundred gallons at 24×36x72. It reminded me of Ho Chi Minh’s glass casket! Cabinet is oak and oak plywood. The doors are actually bi-fold with a false stile between them. We had to allow access to all of the machinery and filters and pumps underneath. That took some head scratching but we got it done. The color match with the closet doors behind it looks pretty good if I must say so myself!

Nice. I just finished a tank cabinet for a 65 gallon but I am hoping for something bigger someday. I am guessing that is a 300. Do you have any internal vertical supports that aren’t shown on the glue up? I was trying to determine how much support I would need to build for my future tank.

That’s a lot of work but it came out really great looking and well made. Like the design and finish. Great job!
