Ok so I had someone ask me to build them a stand for there Nano tank (approx. 15 gallons)
She wanted a very simply style stand, here is a example picture that she showed me.
These stands sell in the $600 to $900 range.
The only real differenct that she didnt want the outside to be white and to have lots of wood grain showing. So i put my hands to the keyboard and came up with this for her.
I raised the shelf up, this would allow her to store all of her electronics in this compartment, and still have plenty of room for the filtration on the bottom. She also decided to go with two small doors instead of 1 single door.
1 sheet 3/4 Red Oak plywood
1 roll edge banding
1 Can Marine Grade white paint
1 tube white caulk
Red Mahogany stain
So this is the final product.
Sitting on my work bench without doors
Sitting in her living room
She wanted the shelf area to be a moisture free as possible so I painted the inside of the stand with the marine grade paint and caulked all the seams.
