I recently built my own cabinet for my 10 gallon nano. I wanted something that was sleek and simple, but would fit all of the equipment I needed for a 10 gallon reef tank. I was able to build the main cabinet for approximately $65. It is made f 1/2" birch plywood and 1x2 dimensional pine strips (actually 1 1/2" x 3/4"). It is glued and screwed together. Screw holes are pre-drilled and countersinked. For a bit more, you can make it look even more like furniture. Below are the plans to built it. For this project you will need: 1) 4x8 sheet of 1/2" birch playwood 2) 1x2 dimensional pine - 6 foot lengths 3) Tape measure 4) Some type of saw. I used a Japanese pull saw as well as [will edit for name/types] 5) Tightbond III Ultimate Wood Glue (or other wood glue) 6) Three - four bar clamps...(I used Jorgensen 36" steel bar clamps). More clamps will make it easier. 7) Electrical drill - I used a 14V Hitachi 8 ) 8 x 1 M4.2 x 25.4 wood screws 9) One #8 Counter sinking bit 10) 30" piano hinge 11) Magnetic catch (to hold door closed) 12) Hole saw bit (diameter will depend on your size wire grommet) 13) Black or white wire grommet.

I am not done with the finishing touches just yet, but will be sure to update with photos!
