Its 3/4 birch with a satin clear sprayed and sanded with 400 grit. Yes weve been busy, check out my other thread Inspector, there is an update. The design is mine, it is similar to alot of other ones, but I came up with it. Most people tend to overbuild fish tank stands. The tensile strength of a 2x4 end to end is rediculous, yet people use 4x4 posts and stuff for the legs. I needed maximum room inside the stand for my filtration tank.

Yes there are fish in it, coral too, I will get some pics when the lights come on and I clean the tank.

Phatboy, show us some pics of the HD and the mustang if you would. We like pics. You should be proud of all you have accomplished, I'm impressed.

Nice work Phatboy. I have built a few stands/canopies myself, and you did a very good job.
