Looks great Matt!
I see what you mean about the wood being different, I am a poplar girl myself. LOVE the stuff...

But I don't think veneer is the way to go... I HATE that stuff...

But you did a hell of a job on that canopy..

Thanks Nicki!

But If I don't do veneer then I'd have to refinish the stand too....

Though I could to the same granite paint I did on my big tank :whistle:

looks really solid, nice job :)

the scrounged, mismatched wood thing - yeah, that's why Wicket's whole tank base/lid is painted black :laugh:

Yea, I mean the stand on that one is particle board, with the faux wood veneer on it. So I'd have to strip that, and then it's 40 bucks a gallon for the granite paint, but still, that stuff covers so well. and you end up with something that looks like a rock, which I love.
