I may have picture of it but to fit it in the double doorway we rolled it in on it's front face. Then with 6 guys and a bunch of scution cups tilted it back to the stand and lifted the front. We used leveage for sure as it was mounted on 2 sheets of plywood. It wasn't easy but we were able to tilt it back enough to use the stand as the back side "holder".

Not to sound like a girly man, but the choice of paint color in your display room looks good.

Thanks. When I first walked downstairs in this house I looked to the right and it was the first thing that came to mind. It used to be a pool table room.

Much better use, IMHO. Can put a nice card table in there and distract your friends with fish and take all their money.

Great build so far, tagging along.

I was lucky enough to have a local store that brings in very high quality live stock with a lengthy QT.
