Got to love that Makita cordless. Nice job on the stand!

Moulding's installed & getting ready for primer. I'll start work on the doors tomorrow.

Well, that's starting to look like a piece of furniture now.

What are your plans for the doors? Hinges, or panels that lift out?

You have already gone beyond anything that I will probably ever construct. My stuff will be more "rustic" (meaning "rough").

That is awesome! I will have to run any future plans by you before I build. Can't wait to see the finished set up.

looks like a great build, wish i was handy enough to make one myself for my 130g, guess i'll have to try and make one for a smaller tank first, still have a 40g long that needs a stand.

Wow....looks more like a mantelpiece than a stand...VERY nice.....next time I get a deal on a 125, I'm calling you!!

I reinforced my 2X6 stand I got w/ my 125, but building it from scratch? That's a whole different ballgame. I would've stopped when the plywood top & ladders were installed. :laugh: But one thing I did find out.....impact drivers are a GREAT tool to have.....I'm returning my B&D 18V & getting the DeWalt my buddy lent me.....I couldn't drive anything w/ the B&D...the DeWalt drove the screws HOME like a hot knife through butter.

THOSE WHO REFUSE KNOWLEDGE ARE DOOMED TO FAIL.

WATER CHANGES ARE THE LIFEBLOOD OF THIS HOBBY. IF YOU DON'T BELIEVE SO OR SIMPLY DON'T FEEL LIKE DOING THEM, RE-HOME YOUR FISH, SELL YOUR AQUARIUM & FIND ANOTHER HOBBY, AS YOU WILL FAIL UTTERLY, COMPLETELY, & MISERABLY.
