    Thinking about adding some ball bearing drawer slides to the side of the cabinet to be able to move the light.

    Very nice definitely going to follow this as I have been thinking about trying one myself down the road.... Where are you getting the liner and how are you going to secure it to the plywood?

    Thanks guys.
    The liner is coming from lowes. Just regular pond liner.
    I am going to staple the liner to the top of the ply on all sides and then there will be a molding on the top to hide it.

    ok, so that answers my burning question. i couldnt figure for the life of me how you were going to make a PLYWOOD tank! but... the liners... ok... makes sense.

    i cant wait to see the progress.

    Not much of a update but I did hang this to hold fragging tools and supplys.
    Should be more build updates in the next few days.
