Tank Arrival

The tank arrived within a few days. I forgot how heavy these tanks are! I had to bribe my wife to help me get it in the house

Here it sits on the stand. I built the stand an inch larger on each side since I knew I wanted to wrap 1x2s around the top to trim it out.

Stand Work

I started to trim out the stand. As said earlier, the top will be trimmed in 1x2's with mitered corners around the tank. Each side will be wrapped in 1/2" sanded plywood, with 2 cutouts in the front for cabinet doors.

Disregard the base moulding in this pic, it was just placed there temporarily for testing.

Initial layout to cut the front plywood sheet.
