As most people, got some time to spare; been painting a house but colors have not been chosen for the bedroom so seems this week besides Th and Fr will be dedicated to complete the stand. The tank is an Oceanic 70G no center brace and drilled for two bulkheads 1.5" each, yes two 1.5"!! on one side I made the overflow box out of PVC but think I will change that one to plexy from scraps at TAP (cheap) I'm feeling more comfortable working with acrylic now, at least for smaller things. The box shown is a smaller one going into a 30G reef but first I have to drill the tank, just need to get the circular diamond saw. It will be similar and will use egg-crate instead of routing the teeth. Stand is 3/4" plywood reinforced with 1" pine and will have two large doors, one per side, as for the top (canopy) most likely will have a flip front since the tank has to slide in place somehow. The front corners meet at an angle of 45 which was hard to get it right, couple times had to re-do the cut with the circular saw. As far as color I don't know what color on it red cherry/mahogany is my favorite but since I'll end up selling it on CL might as well leave it plain for the person to chose one.
