    It's complete. :)

    So I woke up and finished her up today. Sanded down a few rough spots and re-sealed a few parts.

    Looks pretty good, if I do say so myself. ;D

    Thanks man! I sure am.

    Everyone that comes over is very impressed.

    It's holding the tank up very well.

    I would say between the wood, nails, fasteners + screws etc, handles, and polyurethane.... plus the sanding materials (those rotary pads aren't cheap!) and beer to get me motivated....

    $275 at the very least. It didn't save me money at all. But it's unique, and I'm proud of it... and have no doubt that it's 10 times stronger than the stands you buy at petco.
