i bought a 3ft tank with metal stand last weekend,so to day went to buy some pine shelving.and built a cabinant around the tank using the steel frame as the main support for the tank. just need to stain the wood and give it a clear coat of polyurathane varnish,ill try post some pics if i can with my phone
Do post some pics.......sounds interesting.
Please post pictures - I also have a metal stand which I would like to convert - but would like to get some ideas before I tackle this.......please share your tips & errors.....
I am also thinking of going the DIY route for my new tank to keep expenses down, so all tips will be very welcome!
