My grandson wanted a stand to hold two fish tanks,a 30 gallon one on the bottom and a 55 gallon one on the top. It was to fit between two door ways.
I made a rough sketch (not Sketch up..but it works for me.) I started out by ripping seven 2x4s so as to get sone nice square edges that measure 1 1/2X3"
After cutting all the pieces to length, I cut all the half laps in the legs and the rails. After a dry fit I assembled all the parts with glue and screws. Then put together front,back and the two ends. Making sure everything was square. Again with glue and screws. This time I set the screws 3/8 down and put wood plugs over them. Added the filler pieces for the bottom tank. Did a finall sanding and now it is all reddy for Grandson to stain and clear coat. It will be his early Christmas gift.Attachment 50570
