Hello, First I'd like to give credit to Jwin & Tripplemom for inspiring this project....thanks guys. My dad is an excellent woodworker so together we took the idea and improved upon it to make a nice sturdy canopy for my aquarium. It is made from 1/2 inch furniture grade plywood and hardwood braces(mostly scrap pieces) and the bow is skimmed in 1/8 in Plywood. Here are some pictures of the beginning steps. . . This is the tank and stand (which I hope to replace someday with one I've built...it'll have room for a sump). The Interior.
