I have another project getting underway. This one is a stand for a 125g with a 75g and an FX5 below. The lower tank is set to one side of the stand allowing room for a door to hide the filter. I was able to get some boards cut for the frame this weekend. Here's some concept pictures. I'll update as I make more progress.

Got to make some progress on this stand today. Almost have the frame completely assembled. Here are a couple of pictures. Just to put the size into perspective, the frame behind it, to the right is the frame for my 90g, standing on end!! :eek: This is a big boy.

The top frame hasn't been secured yet. I ran out of screws and had to run out for more. 2 cross supports will also be added to the top frame to match the bottom. The left will house an FX5 and the right is the 75g.

The frame is now completely assembled. Next step is the outside casing. A trip to the lumber store soon.

Yep, it will be black. If my wife doesn't mind me disappearing into the shop for the evening I might be able to get the first coat of paint on by this evening.

I have gotten the stand painted with 2 coats of the primer, inside and out. Once my son goes to bed this evening it will get its first coat of black.

The stand is completely finished and will be delivered tomorrow morning. Pictures will follow after it is dropped off.
