I had been reading and studying plans on DIY tank stands. I finally bought the 2x4s two weeks ago, and built the frame. Today I bought the plywood and cut the pieces for the stand. I attached all the pieces except the top and front. I need to figure out how to make the front for the doors, and I still need to buy trim. Then I will stain and seal the wood. I thought this would be cheaper than buying a stand, but it turns out to cost more than I thought. oh well it is all about the experience right?
